The Seventh Annual Graduate Student Research Poster Session was a resounding success!
This year, 22 projects were presented by 26 graduate students from eight different graduate programs. In excess of 250 Faculty, Staff and Lowcountry Citizens grilled and queried the presenters while enjoying a tasty reception sponsored by the Graduate Student Association and the Graduate School in the Stern Center Ballroom. The quality of the posters at this year’s session made the judges’ work very difficult. After much deliberation and discussion, the judges made a decision.
The top presenters (in alphabetical order):
Jen Jones, Environmental Studies, “College Coursework and Perceptions of ‘Sustainability’: A Case Study at the College of Charleston”
Rebecca Quandt, Historic Preservation, “Documenting Ireland’s Elizabethan Landscape”
Leslie Wickes, Marine Biology, “Growth and Distribution of Lophelia pertusa Under ‘Acidified’ Conditions in the Southern California Bight.”
Our thanks go out to the judges for their time and participation:
Trish Ward, Associate Dean of HSS
Jaap Hillenius, Chair of the Biology Department
Eileen Callahan, Director of Compliance at the Office of Research and Grants Administration
Susan Lovelace, Research Scientist, Center of Excellence in Oceans and Human Health, NOAA National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science
