Westminster College will host the 9th Annual Student Environmental Symposium from 5:30-9:00 p.m., Thursday, Dec. 1, in McKelvey Campus Center. Sponsored by Westminster’s Environmental Programs and the Slippery Rock Watershed Coalition, the event is free and open to the public.

Nearly fifty student researchers from Westminster College, Allegheny College, Geneva College, Sharpsville Area High School, Slippery Rock University, University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg, Wilmington Area High School, and Youngstown State University will present their research posters from 5:30-7:00 p.m. in the Witherspoon Rooms and will present oral presentations at 7-9 p.m. in Mueller Theater.

“The Symposium perfectly highlights student work in the region that relates to the environment,” said Dr. Helen Boylan, professor and program coordinator of Westminster’s environmental programs. “We have a wide variety of student projects being presented, from acid mine drainage and water quality to land use and habitat selection. I encourage those who are interested in the environment to come network with—and support—the student presenters.”
