Scholars Celebration Highlights Student Work

Highlighting the work of students, Castleton University held its fifth annual Castleton Scholars Celebration: A Showcase of Original Student Work on Thursday, April 20 in the 1787 Room of the Campus Center.

The annual celebration showcased the rich variety of students’ scholarly and creative endeavors at Castleton across academic departments and programs. Each presentation arose from course assignments, capstone experiences, and independent study programs, all supported and guided by faculty mentors.

This year’s event featured work from 70 students, representing 16 different programs. Presentation topics included racial bias, discovering antibiotic-producing bacteria in local soil samples, the lives of women artists in history, food insecurity in schools, superheroes in an age of terrorism and issues of rape culture.
