This week, we are featuring the 2015 Falvey Scholars and giving you the chance to get to know these bright young adults up close and personal. Not only are they very smart – they’re very interesting! Just last week, Falvey Memorial Library, the Center for Undergraduate Research and Fellowships, and the Honors Program announced the 2015 Falvey Scholars Award winners: Katie Kline, Elizabeth Long, Jessica Swoboda, Nicholas Ader, Joseph Schaadt and John Szot. These six remarkable senior students have been selected from a pool of candidates from various disciplines for their outstanding undergraduate student research projects at Villanova University. Click here for a listing of their projects as presented at the 2015 Falvey Scholars Awards Presentation and Reception Ceremony.
“I am a senior nursing major from Kensington, CT. I have been fortunate to participate in multiple activities on campus including the Student Nurses Association of Pennsylvania (SNAP). It has been a wonderful experience participating in undergraduate research as a Davis Grant recipient and also as serving as the Vice President of the National Student Nurses Association this past year. I have Villanova to thank for all of these enriching opportunities!”
