Adams State College Student Scholar Days is April 1 and 2

(03-01-2010)

Adams State College students from eleven disciplines have the opportunity to present a research project at the third annual Student Scholar Days on April 1 and 2.

This year topics range from "Discovering the diets of bats through analysis of guano in northern Alabama", "Internet or Face-to-Face: Does mode of introduction affect the quality of first impression", "Child Soldiers", "America's Youth Behind Bars", Mozart's Concerto in A Major, K.414", and "The Hispanic Women's Resilience and Power Presented Under the Scope of Three of Almodovar's Irreverent Films".

The Student Scholar Days committee said it is an opportunity for Adams State students to participate in the academic arena. Dr. Brent King, assistant professor of psychology, initiated the project. King said the committee encourages student success and "recognition for their achievements." The committee meets throughout the academic year, planning the event, debriefing post-event, and preparing for the next academic year.

"Student Scholar Days offers students pursuing a bachelor's degree a jump start for graduate school," said Cindy Whitney, committee member and assistant professor of sociology.

The event is free and the public is invited. Student Scholar Days presentations last approximately 20 minutes and start on the half hour. No entry is allowed once a presentation begins, however, during question-and-answer, the door is open. Free refreshments will be served.
