2017 Student Research Day

We had a successful Fifth Annual Student Research Day at Judson on April 24! Organized by The Honors Program and sponsored by the Office of Academic Affairs, each year the event celebrates and showcases some of the best work done by Judson students during the year. Eight students presented on their work from this year, in disciplines ranging from Architecture to Film to Biochemistry to Literature to Worship Arts to Graphic Design.

The Honors Program was well represented. Graduating seniors Natalia Warren and Rachel Peterson, as well as junior Catherine Anderson, shared their work.
