21 WJU Students Earn Top Honors at Research Symposium



WHEELING, W.Va., April 17, 2015 - Twenty-one students were awarded top honors for research projects presented during Wheeling Jesuit University's 16th annual Student Research and Scholarship Symposium.

During the daylong symposium held April 14, students from a wide array of disciplines gave oral presentations, discussed poster models and displayed artwork that were judged by members of the faculty.

“This year, we had a record number of students participating in Research Day. There were more than 150 student presentations throughout the day. On behalf of the Symposium Committee, I would like to thank all of the faculty mentors who provided support to their students and made this day a success. They went 'above and beyond the call of duty' in mentoring and preparing their students,” said WJU Director of Undergraduate Research, Dr. Bryan Raudenbush.
