URCA 2019 Booklet & Schedule Available

The 2019 Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity (URCA) Symposium is quickly approaching on Tuesday, April 9 and the abstract booklet and presentation schedule is now available to view online. 

CAS Dean Dr. Dawn Weber describes URCA as "Following the format of a professional conference, students will present original research, perform theatrical and musical selections, read original creative writing, and exhibit their artwork."

Back by popular demand, two arts and sciences alumni will present their current research and creative activity.

She is currently an art teacher at Green Local Schools in Smithville, Ohio, teaching grades 6-12 (see p. 9).
