Local students participate in research at University of Montevallo

MONTEVALLO—Almost 40 students participated in the University of Montevallo’s 16th annual Undergraduate Research Day, held recently in Harman Hall on the UM campus. Students from all four colleges at UM were invited to engage in research, scholarship and creative activity with faculty mentors, demonstrating their research via posters, oral and PowerPoint presentations.

The goal of Undergraduate Research is to involve students in their own learning; to develop teamwork and pride; to enhance interdisciplinary learning; and to share in the exhilaration of discovery.

This showcase of research projects featured topics ranging from “Bullying: The Experiences of College Students” to “Protein Kinase G Expression in Human Breast Cancer;” from “The Effects of Dividends and Free Cash Flow on Market Returns” to “Visibility of a Rectangle: Analyzing Card Design in Deck-Building Games;” and more.

Faculty mentors assisted students as needed. At Montevallo, where more than 95 percent of the faculty hold the Ph.D. or other terminal degree in their field, almost all the advisers on these research projects have doctoral degrees.

Students participating in UM’s Undergraduate Research Day included William Hamrick of Eufaula, whose topic was “Illumination of Bacteriophage Populations in Montevallo, Ala., Aquatic Environments.”
