INSIDE BINGHAMTON UNIVERSITY
Student excellence highlighted during Honors Day
“We want to remind people that our students just don’t take courses and earn credits and grades, but they achieve something special because they have a lot of talent and are rich in accomplishments,” said H. Stephen Straight, vice provost for undergraduate education.
The undergraduate showcase will be offered from 2-3 p.m., with students displaying their research and talents through poster presentations and table displays.
“The showcase is designed to highlight the many different forms of distinguished independent work done by our undergraduate students in collaboration with faculty,” said Wayne Jones, executive director of the Center for Learning and Teaching.
Among the presentations, biology and chemistry students will explain their independent study involving sensors and the environment, and a group of Binghamton University scholars will discuss their exploration into improvements and upgrades to make the Nature Preserve more accessible to the campus and local community.
An award’s ceremony will follow from 3-4 p.m. Among those being recognized are the University Student Excellence Award winners from each school, Foundation Award winners and the Who’s Who in American College and Universities honorees. The event is sponsored by the Provost’s Office and coordinated by the vice provost for undergraduate education and the Center for Learning and Teaching.
