Twenty-three honors students will give poster presentations about their research on Tuesday, May 6, from 2 to 4 p.m. in the Dodds Hall lobby. Additionally, over the next few weeks, honors students will present the results of their honors thesis research. View the schedule of presentations.

Some of the fascinating projects include a graphic design student who conceptualized a new design for New York City’s skyline, a criminal justice student who will present a policy analysis of animal cruelty legislation and a math major who will explain her research about the best ways to teach math online.
