SELINSGROVE— Twenty-three students and 12 faculty from Susquehanna University presented research at the 10th annual Landmark Conference Summer Research Symposium recently held recently at Juniata College.
The symposium brings together undergraduate researchers from colleges and universities within the NCAA’s Division III Landmark Conference, which includes Susquehanna. Students presented the results of their summer research that was done in collaboration with faculty, in-poster displays or oral presentation sessions.
“We have a long tradition at Susquehanna of providing our students with substantive research opportunities,” said Margaret Peeler, professor of biology at Susquehanna and one of several faculty mentors who attended the symposium. “Our students present their research at conferences all over the country and some go on to become published co-authors alongside their faculty advisors, which is an excellent opportunity when applying for graduate schools or jobs.”
The 23 students from Susquehanna who presented their research at the day-long symposium included Andrew Ressler, of Selinsgrove, Holly Jones, of Turbotville; Larry Herrold Jr., of Sunbury; Sam Keller, of Turbotville; Rachel Daku, of Selinsgrove; Kara Pytko, of Minersville; and Jason Bonner, of Winfield.
