Each fall as the academic year gets underway, the College’s Office of Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities (URCA) hosts a poster session to showcase recent student-faculty research. The 2019 Celebration of Scholars event will take place on Monday, Aug. 19, 2019, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on the first floor of Addlestone Library.

This year’s research projects, which includes nearly 100 students and their faculty mentors, ranges from a study of the molecular detection of fecal coliforms and human pathogens in Charleston’s waterways to an analysis of the feeding ecology of Bonnethead Sharks to the relationship between the frequency and context of social media use and mental health outcomes.

The Celebration of Scholars is free and open to the public. Follow this link for a full list of research projects that will be on display at the celebration.
