Last week Elmira College hosted the Eighth Annual Student Research Conference in Cowles Hall. More than 40 Elmira students, representing 10 disciplines and all class years, presented course projects and independent research conducted with faculty. 

Cash prizes were awarded to standout papers in each of the research sessions and in each category of the poster sessions including natural sciences, social sciences, and applied research. 

The academic writing session was comprised of four exemplary papers selected for presentation from the freshmen writing courses. Invited presenters included: Taylor McDuffee '20, Sara Skelly '20, Sarah Turner '20, and Jake Weber '20.
