The School of the Sciences celebrated our seniors at the annual May Celebration. All seniors and their families were invited to join faculty and staff for the event. Food, awards, a senior slide show and presents made the event spectacular!

Students who completed a research or internship project in the spring of 2016 gathered to showcase their posters at the semi-annual School of the Sciences Poster Session. The students, seniors who completed off-campus research and internship Capstones, as well as sophomores and juniors who engaged in on-campus research, all did a fabulous job. We were proud to welcome off-campus mentors, family members, alumni, friends and guests from across the campus community.
