Three of our students competed in the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences Undergraduate Research Forum on Thursday, March 1, 2018.

Mariah Stollar, a senior studying community leadership, Marietta, Ohio, "Evaluation of the vice president's conversation on the future of Extension"

The CFAES Undergraduate Research Forum provides a means for undergraduate students to share their research with members and friends of the OSU community; recognizes the significant contributions to research by OSU undergraduates; and facilitates exchange between students, faculty, and the public. Participation in this event will prepare students for the OSU Denman Undergraduate Research Forum.

Students enrolled in any undergraduate degree program in College of Food, Agricultural, and Evironmental Sciences and the School of Environment and Natural Resources are invited to participate, provided they have a CGPA of 2.5 or higher and are engaged in supervised research projects in the area of their major.
