AWARD-WINNING UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH

3/31/2009 —

When it comes to our students, Penn State Brandywine has a lot to brag about!

Campus Schreyer Scholars Teron Meyers and Lindley Jones represented not just our campus, but the entire University at an event in Harrisburg on March 24. The “Undergraduate Research at the Capitol – Pennsylvania” conference showcased exceptional and award-winning research projects completed by undergraduate students throughout the state. Penn State was permitted to send four students – and of the four, two of them were ours! Teron and Lindley presented their research projects to legislators and their staffs, as well as other students and faculty. Congratulations to both of them for achieving this honor and bringing pride to our campus.

Also last week, six honors scholars -- Jennifer Choi, Teron Meyers, James Wang, Paul Cheung, Chris Collins, and Kyle Lauser -- presented their research at the 2009 Northeast Regional Honors Conference in Annapolis, Maryland.  The students presented their posters and talks with professionalism and poise; in fact, we received several compliments on the quality of their questions and their remarkable conference participation.  Congratulations to these students for doing a wonderful job at the conference!
