Erskine’s 2016 Undergraduate Research Symposium included student poster presentations in the areas of athletic training, biology, business, chemistry and physics, and social sciences.

Student researchers were on hand to answer questions about their work during scheduled sessions in Bowie Arts Center and the Daniel•Moultrie Science Center.

“I am very pleased about having the Undergraduate Research Symposium on campus,” Assistant Professor of Psychology Dr. Briana Van Scoy said.

“This is an excellent opportunity to highlight the academics of Erskine College and showcase the high-quality research that our students are conducting.”

Professor of Chemistry Dr. Joel Boyd noted that the symposium has grown during its three years. “This year, the event was expanded to include student work in business and social sciences in addition to the natural sciences,” he said.

“The event was very well attended by students and faculty, and the student poster presentations were excellent.”
