Thirty-six students had a captive audience August 6 when they explained how they spent their summer vacation.

McNair Scholars and Student Summer Scholars gave oral and poster presentations during the annual showcase, sponsored by the Office of Undergraduate Research and Scholarship and held in the Kirkhof Center.

Gayle R. Davis, provost and vice president for Academic and Student Affairs, told the audience that the student researchers were in the first stages of careers filled with inquiry and professional scholarship. “This is the beginning of greatness for these students today,” Davis said.

The students represented diverse disciplines ranging from music to chemistry to political science. Each student worked with a faculty mentor throughout the summer.
