On April 21, 2023, the College of Arts and Sciences (A&S) hosted its annual Undergraduate Research Festival in the Milton Atrium of the Life Sciences Complex. Throughout the day, well over 100 undergraduate students presented their findings to fellow peers, faculty, staff and interested visitors.

With projects ranging from “Experiences of Deaf Women in Reproductive Healthcare Settings” (Katie Miles ’24 & Ainsley Rodio ’25) to “Long-Term Single People’s Experiences of Being Single” (Maxum O’Halloran ’23), the impressive science- and humanities-related research on display investigated past topics through a modern lens and explored the innovations of today and the future.

This year’s festival featured 75 poster exhibitions and 23 faculty-moderated presentations, making it one of the largest of any such event at Syracuse University.

Subjects spanned a wide range of A&S programs, with students taking part from the Departments of African American Studies, Art and Music Histories, Biology, Chemistry, Communication Sciences and Disorders, English, Forensics, Languages, Literatures and Linguistics, Neuroscience, Physics, Psychology and Writing and Rhetoric.

A selection of students shared brief summaries of their research. Watch their interviews below.
