Well over 100 undergraduate students presented their findings to a crowd of their peers, faculty, staff and interested visitors at the College of Arts & Sciences’ (A&S’) annual Undergraduate Research Festival on April 19, 2024.

The event, which was held in the Life Sciences Complex, showcased a wide variety of student research, with project titles ranging from “Importance of Ancestors and Ancestorship in Spanish Communities and Culture” (Nicolas Greiner-Guzman) to “Heart Rate Variability in Relation to Childhood Stuttering” (Libby Fox).

With 80 poster exhibitions and 20 faculty-moderated presentations on offer, this year’s festival was once again one of the largest of any such event at Syracuse University.

A wide range of A&S programs were represented, with students taking part from the Departments of Art and Music Histories, Biology, Chemistry, Communication Sciences and Disorders, Languages, Literatures and Linguistics, Neuroscience, Philosophy, Physics, Psychology, Women’s and Gender Studies and Writing and Rhetoric.

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