“I’m impressed with the breadth of topics, it’s amazing,” said Joan Barth, a judge from the Institute for Social Science. “It really looks like people spent a lot of time collecting their data and preparing for 
their presentations.”

Poster and oral presentations began at 8 a.m. and continued until 6 p.m. Judges walked around the room, stopping at each poster to listen to what presenters had to say about 
their research.

Haley Bevis, a freshman majoring in communicative disorders, presented her research on people’s 
perceptions of stutters.

“I chose to participate in research because I didn’t know much about social research,” Bevis said. “When most people think of research, they think of the hard sciences. Now I know how research other than science 
is done.”

Oral presenters shared their work with an audience and a panel 
of judges.

Bethany Corne, a freshman majoring in public relations and business management, researched what kind of tweets most effectively advertised for companies.

“I thought it was a great opportunity as an undergrad to participate in research and I took it,” Corne said. “I’ve gained so much. I have a wonderful faculty mentor, information on data and I have a project I can be proud of as a freshman.”

Each individual college will present awards for the best poster and oral presentations. The Capstone International Center will also present an award to the best internationally-focused project in each college. An award luncheon will be held on April 21. Results will be available in 
a few days.
