School of Honors Student Success Seminar
There is no question that undergraduate research is correlated with greater success in higher education. SFA supports integrating undergraduate research into our curriculum. Specifically, the School of Honors introduces first-year students to undergraduate research through our different honors courses.
One prime example is the work done by our students in this year’s honors section of SFAS 1101: Student Success Seminar. In a short three-week period, students were broken into groups, assigned to examine the impact of COVID-19 on a national/local level and produced a video presentation of their findings. These videos are the outcome of their hard work. It is our hope that by encouraging such work at this early point in their academic career, students will continue to find value in undergraduate research and participate in the their individual college sponsored symposia, as well as the annual university-wide Undergraduate Research Conference.
