The seventh annual Ashland University College of Arts & Sciences Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity Symposium (URCA) took place on April 12, 2016. This event allows students to present their original research and/or creative work in a professional conference format. These outstanding students begin their careers already contributing in their particular fields.
