UW-RF Students Showcase Original Research

NOV. 5, 2004--The Society for Undergraduate Research, Scholarly and Creative Activities at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls hosts the third annual "Evening Gala" from 7 to 9 p.m., Nov. 11 in the River Room of Rodli Commons.

The free, public event showcases traditional scientific research, computer science projects, physical arts and artistic presentations from UW-RF undergraduate students.

SURSCA was founded by a group of students who attended the National Conference on Undergraduate Research held in Whitewater, Wis., in spring 2002. Students found that presenting their research and scholarly and creative activities at a large prestigious national conference was exhilarating and wanted to offer similar opportunities to current and future UW-RF students.

The event enhances awareness of the creative spirit that thrives within UW-RF students. Last year's event presented posters and artwork from 35 presenters to more than 80 attendees.

Students involved in SURSCA activities work together to raise awareness on the critical aspect of applying new knowledge in the pursuit of scholarship and allowing the creative process to help students reach their dreams.
