Gardner-Webb University students showcased their original research in an array of academic disciplines during a pair of prestigious spring academic conferences. Nearly 60 undergraduate and graduate students participated in the Life of the Scholar (LOTS) Multidisciplinary Conference on Gardner-Webb’s campus in March, and 22 of those undergraduate scholars were delegates to the Alpha Chi 2016 National Convention in Washington, D.C., in April. The Alpha Chi delegation was GWU’s largest since beginning its honor society chapter in 1972, and several students earned significant prizes for their national presentations.
