On Sunday, senior Honors students officially kicked off Undergraduate Research Week 2015 by presenting their theses. On Tuesday, two events took place: paper and poster presentations.
At the paper and poster presentations, the writing, research, and visual aids were certainly impressive! Though, the best part for me was the opportunity to interact with student-researchers and see final projects. In the Writing Center, we pride ourselves on talking to you when you’re in-process. When we meet, you’re still considering your topic from multiple angles. There’s so many rhetorical decisions still left to make. It’s exciting to be a part of your development, but the downside is we hardly ever get to see how your presentations, papers, and projects turn out in the end. I think it’s now safe to say that Bellarmine students are doing a fantastic job polishing projects and actively participating in the conversations of their disciplines!
On behalf of the Writing Center, I want to say “thank you” to the student presenters. It takes confidence and a leap-of-faith to bring one’s work to the public’s attention. I also want to acknowledge the faculty mentors and the administration for making this happen!
Now… what’s in the works for next year?
