Research Day 2015 Showcases Undergrad Research!

Research Day 2015
April 02, 2015

GW's annual Research Day 1, held recently on March 31st, was another huge success with nearly 200 students presenting their research.

Impressively, two thirds of the presenters were undergraduate students. The event filled both ballrooms of the Marvin Center and drew huge crowds from around the GW community. Teams of faculty judges evaluated each student's research and awarded cash prizes in different categories.
