Research Exhibition

The Honors College provides students the opportunity to share and disseminate their research and creative projects. 

Each year, the Honors College hosts two research exhibitions where our students have the opportunity to share their research and creative projects that they have been conducting in their Honors College classes with other students, faculty, and community members. At these exhibitions, our students learn to communicate what is most compelling about their research to students from other majors, professionals, and subject-matter experts who attend the event. This page features some of the inspirational lightning talks that have been featured at this event.
