Hiram College students experience extraordinary hands-on research and internship opportunities at the undergraduate level. Nearly 50 students will showcase their internship work and independent research (mostly conducted during summer 2015) at the annual Celebration of Experiential Learning, Sept. 22, 2015, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Kennedy Center Main Lounge.
Students will present their work through poster presentations. They will discuss the topic/focus of their internship or research study, detail the findings and ponder how the work they did fits into their studies and future career or graduate school plans. 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.
