Excellence in undergraduate research was on display at the Third Annual Student OSCARS (Outstanding Scholarship, Creative Activities and Research Symposium).

The event provides a forum for spectators to gain insight on a wide range of interdisciplinary works. Sample works included diverse themes from grief management, to antibiotic resistance and unique musical compositions.

A culmination of exceptional research and acquired skills, the OSCARS provides students with the opportunity to work closely with faculty mentors in an academic subject. Outstanding entries into the competition receive first place recognition:
