A large blue banner, “Honoring Outstanding Undergraduate Research: Falvey Scholars,” first captures our attention in the display window between Holy Grounds and the main area of Falvey Library’s first floor.
Picture frames house photos of the newly selected Falvey Scholars who represent their respective Colleges: Nursing, Engineering, Business, Arts and Sciences.
The 2010 Falvey Scholars have been selected: Arts — Brittany Parisi (Dr. Satya Pattnayak, faculty mentor); Business — Christopher McKay (Dr. Mary Kelly, faculty mentor); Engineering — Susan Mischinski (Dr. Ani Ural, faculty mentor); Nursing — Ashley Thompson and Kelly Moran (Dr. Ruth McDermott-Levy, RN, faculty mentor) and Sciences — Shreya Trivedi (Dr. Louise Russo, faculty mentor).
Bright red posters provide information about the Falvey Scholars Awards. The Falvey Scholars presented their research on Friday, April 23, at 1 p.m. in the library first floor lounge. Also, the program is in its eighth year of collaboration among the Library, the Honors Program and the Center for Undergraduate Research and Fellowships.
The display was created by Joanne Quinn, the designer of cultural displays and special projects for Falvey’s Events and Outreach team.
