Celebrating undergraduate research

April 11, 2011

Picture of student holding beakerIt's Undergraduate Research Week, as resolved by the U.S. House of Representatives in 2010. Across the nation, colleges and universities will be highlighting student research projects and hosting events this week to discuss the importance of research in undergraduate education. Find more information on the Council of Undergraduate Research website.

At Augsburg, we will mark this week with a series of events including Zyzzogeton, the annual celebration of student research and creativity. Events will be held Wednesday and Thursday. On Friday, Apr. 15 at 4:30 p.m., we also will recognize Day and Weekend graduating seniors who have achieved departmental or Latin honors as well as those who have been inducted into national honor socieities at the honors convocation ceremony.

In addition, mathematics professor John Zobitz and Jeremy Anthony, a senior mathematics major, will meet with Minnesota's Congressional representatives and present Anthony's research work at the Council of Undergraduate Resarch's Posters on the Hill event on Wednesday, Apr. 13 in Washington, D.C.
