Undergraduate Research Day!

Some of Hofstra's brightest minds showed their original senior research at the annual Undergraduate Research Day! The research varied from subjects such as film and drama, to geology and business, and everything in between! This is such a great event at Hofstra because it allows students the opportunity to view their fellow classmates work and "get a better prospective on their own work," according to Angela Miller, a student who shared her own research at this event. This event drew in hundreds of students, faculty members, and administrators, however this is no surprise due to all of the talented students and their impressive work they shared!

Check out some of the research that these students presented! 
Antonio Fuertes and his research entitled,
"The Affordable Care Act's Impact on Businesses."
Chika Okuyama and her research entitled,
"Francis Ford Coppola and Japanese Culture."
Schuyler DeLuca and his research entitled,
"Annotation of a Portion of the D. biarmipes Dot Chromosome."
Alexis Di Gregorio and her research entitled,
"Down the Road: A Look Into Character Development."
Tami LongJohn and Nika Chery and their research entitled,
"Using Trace Metals, Pollen, and Radiocarbon to Determine the Chronostratigraphy of a Marsh
Sediment Core from North Cinder Island, NY." 
Elizabeth Driscoll and her research entitled,
"Here To Stay: Guidelines for a Legal and Balanced Compromise
on the Use of Drones."
