Throughout the world of higher education, the end
of the semester is a time of intense and usually private study and reflection
on the year. At Samford, it also is a time for students to publicly share
the results of their original research projects. The primary forum for
that sharing, the Samford University Showcase for Undergraduate Research
2004, will take place on Friday, May 7.
Approximately 130 students will present the results of their research
on topics representing most areas of Samford’s undergraduate curriculum.
The presentations will be made in concurrent sessions from 8 a.m.-3 p.m.
in Samford’s Sciencenter, rooms 109, 311 and 315. Honor thesis
defense sessions will be held in room 204 from 8 a.m.-3:50 p.m. Posters
will be displayed in room 120 from 11 a.m.-1:45 p.m. Follow the link

Walker’s spring course, The Historian's Craft, began presenting
their civil rights research projects on May 6, and will continue on May
