Troy University highlighted the work of its students during its inaugural research conference.

The Troy University Student Research Conference was held on Friday, April 2, in Hawkins-Adams-Long Hall of Honor.

The conference allowed both undergraduate and graduate students to showcase their work in different categories.

These categories include: Language Acquisition, Politics and History, Criminal Justice, Computing and Sports, Healthcare Issues, Management and Job Satisfaction, and Workplace and Classroom Diversity.

Lauren Molella, a senior double majoring in  biomedical sciences and psychology from Millbrook, New York, presented her research during the conference. She said that the event was a great way to show student work that would normally be overlooked.

“I thought it was a great opportunity because undergraduate research is not very prevalent at our university,” Molella said. “I think it’s something we’ve been working towards and, not only is it a great resume builder, but it’s also a chance to talk about something that’s close to your heart.”

Each session was also moderated by Troy students.

Ben Robertson, a professor of English and the creator of the research conference, said that the event was a great way to see the work of students from different majors.

“It is really nice to see the students come up here and present,” Robertson said. “As a professor, you see the papers a lot of the time, but you don’t actually get to see the students, particularly from other disciplines, sharing their work. It’s exciting.”
