Students Showcase Their Academic Research in Annual Celebration
More than 200 students displayed their research in the arts and humanities, business, professional studies, science, and social science at Providence College’s fifth annual Celebration of Student Scholarship and Creativity, held Wednesday, April 23, on the upper level of Slavin Center. “The projects are exemplary because of the depth of commitment and understanding they reflect,” said Dr. Hugh F. Lena, provost and senior vice president for academic affairs. “We congratulate both the students and their faculty on their outstanding accomplishments. We hope that their enriching experiences serve as the foundation for future academic and professional endeavors.” For more information about this year's event, click here.
