Fraternity and Sorority Members Participate in Research Symposium

On August 1, 2019, fourteen members of the NC State Fraternity and Sorority community participated in the NC State Summer Undergraduate Research and Creativity Symposium. During this event, they presented poster sessions on their research and answered questions from attendees. Academic excellence is a tradition and priority of the NC State fraternity and sorority community and engaging in undergraduate research is a High Impact Practice (HIP)(Kuh, 2008). We are so proud of our students and their efforts to answer exciting and important questions facing our world. Below is a list of students that presented in one of the two sessions offered during the symposium and the title of their projects.
