Westmont Magazine Symposium Celebrates Student Research
With their projects displayed on colorful posters, 28 Westmont students explained the results of their research at the 10th Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium on campus in April. Representing all three divisions (humanities, social sciences and behavioral and natural sciences) the projects highlight a hallmark of Westmont’s academic program: the opportunity for students to do research with professors.
Topics ranged from Chaim Weizmann and the Holocaust to the priest-king Melchizedek from Genesis 14 to multiple memory systems of the rat brain. Student worked with faculty mentors and answered questions at the event.
