Hiram College

Hiram College students will showcase their internship work and independent research at the fifth annual Celebration of Research, Sept. 26, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Kennedy Center Main Lounge.

Students will present their work through poster presentations. Many students use this opportunity to prepare for senior capstones or regional and national conference presentations throughout the year. The Celebration of Research is an excellent opportunity for freshmen to see the many research and hands-on opportunities available to them as Hiram students.

Students will present their posters either from 11:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. or from 12:15 to 1 p.m.
