04 May DSU students showcase efforts in research, humanities, and arts at 2021 Celebration of Scholars
Dickinson State University (DSU) students had the opportunity to showcase their achievements in research, humanities, and the arts during the 2021 Celebration of Scholars event Saturday, April 24, in Murphy Hall on the DSU campus. Students presented their scholarly work to an audience of peers, faculty, and community members through either an oral or poster presentation.
Dr. Paul Barnhart, associate professor of natural sciences at DSU, helped to coordinate the conference. “The Celebration of Scholars allows the students of Dickinson State University to display the amazing scholarly activity they are working on,” said Barnhart. “The work being conducted by students ranges from cancer research to creative works in literature and film. This is a great opportunity for students to experience what it is like to present at the collegiate level of academic research and, for many, to prepare for the rigor of graduate schools and professional schools alike.”
“It felt good talking to others outside my research bubble about the importance of my work,” said Blessing Okosun, a biology major who presented at the conference. “Preparing for the presentation allowed me to see my work from a bigger perspective and appreciate my research sequence that ran through the entire year.”
