We look forward to seeing you on Friday, April 24th for the 35th Annual Mid-Atlantic Undergraduate Social Research Conference (MAUSRC) at Villanova University.
We are honored to be able to host the conference for the third consecutive year. We are pleased to welcome students and faculty from fifteen schools: Albright College, Cheyney University, Drexel University, Eastern University, Elizabethtown College, Haverford College, Immaculata University, Le Moyne College, Neumann University, Susquehanna University, Swarthmore College, Temple University, University of Delaware, Widener University, and York Country Day School (affiliated with York College). We commend the 70 students who will be presenting their research and appreciate the time and energy that students, staff, and faculty have dedicated to making this conference a success.
The conference will begin with an opening reception and registration at 10:00am in the LoBiondo Atrium in Bartley Hall. The President of Villanova University, Rev. Peter M. Donohue, will offer welcome remarks at 10:30am in Bartley 1011, which will be followed by keynote speaker Kenny Tsang ‘13 (Villanova graduate and researcher at the National Association of Colleges and Employers). Prior to the first Panel Session, Jessica Flynn -- a current student at Villanova University and presenter at this year’s conference -- will kick off an interactive activity that will help student presenters get to know each other and feel more while presenting their research. We anticipate that you will join us for the entirety of the conference, from 10:00am until 4:30pm.
Here is what students shared about their experience at the 2014 MAUSRC:
"It was a great opportunity to see what other students are researching and to exchange ideas. It also gave me the chance to get over my fear of presenting at a conference.”
“It was fun and a great learning experience for me.”
There is no fee to register or participate in the conference. Student presenters and their faculty or staff project advisors will be treated to an opening reception and lunch.
Don’t miss out on this valuable opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with other young scholars across the region! You are welcome to check out highlights from previous conferences, including the 2014 MAUSRC and 2013 MAUSRC.
