Students, do not miss the opportunity to see your fellow classmates present on their own research today at Fiat Lux.
Hosted by the Association of Honors Students (AHS), Fiat Lux will be held in Christoverson rooms 210 and 112 for the oral presentations from 9:45 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and in the lobby for the poster presentations from 9:45 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
As a new feature this year, it will all be in one day, today, instead of being spread out over three days.
This showcase is open to all Florida Southern students and is a requirement for Honors students completing honorizations and senior theses.
Some of the presentations are a class requirement and are not specifically individual research projects of choice, such as is the case for the students in the Honors 1173 class.
There will be 33 15-minute individual oral presentations, and 28 individual and group poster presentations which will go on simultaneously in sets of either 8 or twelve for an hour and forty-five minutes.
The topics being presented range far and wide. From math subjects, such as algorithms and geometry, to social subjects, such as the cleanliness of freshman girl dorms and Greek organization victim-blaming, there will be a topic to interest everyone.
“It should be an exciting mix of presentations from all different majors,” Dr. Erica Bernheim, assistant professor of English, said.
All students, staff and faculty are welcome to attend and free food and drinks will be given to those who do.
