QUEST student research showcase is Tuesday

Dozens of Youngstown State University graduate and undergraduate students showcase their scholarly achievements at the annual QUEST Forum for Student Scholarship Tuesday, April 2 in Kilcawley Center.

The event is free and open to the public.

Cash awards will be presented in a variety of categories.

“An entire day devoted to recognizing and celebrating student scholarship is rare,” said Jeffrey Coldren, YSU director of Undergraduate Research and Scholarly Activities. “Unlike other universities that possess excellent research reputations based largely upon the work of faculty members and graduate students, YSU’s QUEST is devoted to scholarship that is initiated and performed largely by students. The fact that freshmen and sophomores can get actively involved in research projects with full professors is unusual on college campuses today.”

Over the past several years, QUEST has provided opportunities for students to share their achievements and creations with students and faculty, hone their presentation skills, and receive university recognition for their achievements.

QUEST includes research and scholarship in all forms – scientific findings, musical scores, engineering designs and analyses, panel discussions, poetry readings, dance performances, honors and senior theses, study abroad experiences, and more.
