OCT. 28, 2005--The University of Wisconsin-River Falls Society for Undergraduate Research, Scholarly and Creative Activities will host the fourth annual "Gala Evening of RSCA" from 6 to 8 p.m. on Nov. 10 in the River Room of Rodli Commons.

The showcase will include scientific posters by students, staff and faculty that have been recently presented at national, state and local meetings

Works of art and music will also be presented.

Director of Development and Alumni Relations Dan McGinty will speak about the role of RSCA on campus and the support it has received from the UW-RF Foundation.

Brianna Zemke, Vice President of SURSCA, will also address the group.

A brief presentation ceremony and refreshments will follow.

SUSRCA faculty advisor Timothy Lyden, thinks the gala is a valuable opportunity for students to feel comfortable presenting their work.

"The gala allows students to practice and become familiar with presenting in a comfortable environment here on campus and helps prepare them for the spring schedule of meetingsn which includes the National Conference for Undergraduate Research."

Lyden says this opportunity is important to a university student's education. "The role of SURSCA and formal presentation of a student's work at a large national meeting cannot be underestimated."

Along with the showcase, there will be information about a fund raising drive to help students attend the National Conference on Undergraduate Research.

This event is free and open to all students and community members.
