Back to SOAN News and Updates

A group of SOAN’s high achieving seniors presented the results of their senior research projects May 5 to SOAN faculty and staff. In the past, these presentations served as a defense for the honors program, but are now focused on an opportunity to learn about their research, ask questions, and celebrate their hard work.
