Working side by side with faculty members to conduct year-long research in your chosen field is one of the most formative parts of the Honors College experience. Each year, seniors in the Charleston Fellow Program have the opportunity to share that experience with the campus community when they publicly present on the research they have conducted as a part of their Honors College Bachelor’s Essay. These presentations, covering a diverse range of academic topics, offer students the opportunity to celebrate their impressive scholastic work and also to polish up their presentation and public speaking skills.
