More than 100 local college students had the chance to showcase for their research during Wheeling Jesuits 20th annual Student Research and Scholarship Symposium.
This event gave every student a chance to compete for a $2,500 scholarship.
During the day long event on Tuesday, participants were judged based on their oral presentations and poster sessions throughout the day. It all culminated in the Haig Competition.
According to Dr. Bryan Raudenbush, who is Wheeling Jesuit’s Director of Undergraduate Research, it’s the end to a year long process.
“Many of our students will either work on a project that they had begun in a classroom or an independent study with one of their research mentors,” he explained. “We see them working from start to finish. Today is the celebration of them finishing their project.”
This years symposium was dedicated to the memory of long time Wheeling Jesuit professor Ben Stout, who passed away in August of last year.
