Honors Students Present at URCA Symposium

On April 8, 2015, some of Ashland University's best and brightest Arts and Sciences students participated in the sixth annual Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity (URCA) Symposium. This symposium allows undergraduate students to present their original research or creative work that they have developed alongside a faculty mentor or collaborator in a professional conference setting.
