Westminster Students Present Work at Research Symposium

Forty-five Westminster College students presented their work at the annual Undergraduate Research Symposium April 29.

"The symposium celebrates undergraduate research and gives the campus community an opportunity to recognize the outstanding work that's being done by individual students with faculty mentors from across the College," said Dr. Virginia Tomlinson, director of the Drinko Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning at Westminster College.  "This truly is a community of scholars with students and faculty learning from other students."

"Over a hundred students, faculty, parents, and family members participated in the annual Undergraduate Research Symposium," Tomlinson said.  "Students of all levels and from various disciplines shared their research with this diverse audience."

Contact Tomlinson at (724) 946-6033 or e-mail for more information.

Two Westminster College Students Lead Caving Trips

Two Westminster College students, James Chaney and Pamela McCalmont, led their groups in a caving experience in the West Virginia mountains.
"Because a class of 20 is too large to go as a single group, I ask two students to help me each year," said Dr. Kenneth Long, professor of chemistry and teacher of an annual geology class that includes a caving field trip.  "When I asked the students to nominate two classmates who are level-headed and respected by their peers, James and Pamela were clearly the choices."

"We left early Friday morning, and spent most of the afternoon traveling and making a few stops along the way," said McCalmont.  "At one stop we climbed up a road cut and dug for fossils.  We learned about them in class, but it is so much more fun to actually dig them up and examine them."
