MxCC Students Exhibit Research, Academic Talent

Bipolar Disorder, Opiods, Fingerprinting and Journalism among Many Topics Presented at College’s Second Academic Convivium

For the second year, MxCC students will make oral and visual presentations of their original research during the College’s academic convivium which takes place this Friday, April 29, from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in Founders Hall on the Middletown campus. This formal event allows nearly 40 students to showcase their rigorous research work on 30 separate topics in fields such as biotechnology, social sciences, criminal justice, law, engineering, and education.  The public is encouraged to attend this impressive display of academic excellence.

Students will make oral presentations during morning and afternoon sessions held in the student lounge in Founders Hall.  Students will be on hand to discuss poster presentations from 11:45 a.m. – 12:45 p.m. in the cafeteria and in the Pavilion.  Posters will be on display throughout the day for further review. Many faculty who guided students’ research throughout the academic year will also be present throughout the day. 

“We are so impressed that students embraced the concept of an academic convivium at MxCC again this year, putting in a tremendous amount of time and effort to participate,” said Dr. Anna Wasescha, president of MxCC.  “The topics this year are extremely relevant to our world today, illustrating how our students analyze and contemplate issues that affect lives.  This is an exciting new tradition and we welcome the public to our campus to be a part of it.”
