Photo gallery: this semester’s Student Academic Conference in pictures!

IMG_8909On a snowy Monday evening, students, faculty, staff and community members gathered to learn about the independent study projects that Augustana students have been pursuing this semester.

Our Student Academic Conference is held twice a year, and provides a forum for students to present the results of their findings in Independent Study courses, Community Service-Learning projects and group work they have done over the semester.

This semester’s fare was representative of what attendees have come to expect: remarkable research projects, engaging presentations, and nervous students speaking in front of a room full of engaged and interested attendees. Poster presentations ranged from links between obesity and diabetes, through the effects of GMO agriculture, to mass spectrometry characterization of proteins and the spectroscopic identification of ammunition through gunshot residue. Students gave talks on frncophone culture, Writing Centre results, exam stress and designing a video game to teach about bats while musical presentations and student paintings highlit the Fine Arts areas of study.

While the Outstanding Independent Work Award winner is yet to be named, many of the projects stood out as remarkable for their subject matter, depth of consideration, and quality of research that went into them. Watch for the next Student Academic Conference on Monday, April 7, 2014!
