7th Annual Graduate Student Research Poster Session

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):  


One of the top presenters, Rebecca Quandt

 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.”


Future College of Charleston graduate student?


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

    We would be VERY proud of Anders, age 1 – pictured above, if he were to become a cofc grad. student! Thanks for including this bright young mind in your poster session. We both had a great time, and learned a lot!
