Honors Program Students Present Research

Northern Michigan University Honors Program students and their faculty mentors will present their research projects from 7-9 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 19, in the Lydia Olson Library atrium. Admission is free and open to the public. 

Earlier this year, seven students were awarded one of three scholarships: the Anna and Rich Lundin Summer Research Fellowship; the Dr. James Hendricks Summer Research Fellowship; or the Honors Program Summer Research Fellowship. Students used their scholarships to accompany a faculty member as a research fellow over the summer. Student presenters, their faculty mentors and research titles are:
