Six Honors Students Present at NCHC Conference

In November, six Honors Program students presented their research at the National Collegiate Honors Council Conference in Atlanta, GA. Paige Jacobs (Environmental Science), Kulvinder Lotay (Computer Science), Daniel Peck (Environmental Science), Andrew Montalti (Political Science), and Alec Lee (Environmental Science) presented posters on their Honors research projects. In addition, at the conference Andrew Montalti, Alec Lee, Paige Jacobs, and Dr. James G. Snyder hosted a roundtable presentation on the popular Honors seminar “Ethics of Food.”

Before the conference the students presented their research at the Honors Program’s Research Forum. At the Honors Research Forum students present their research to the Honors community to prepare for a conference presentation. The forum is an informal gathering of students and faculty to celebrate Honors research at Marist, and is hosted at the program’s upperclassmen housing unit in New Gartland Building A.

Every year approximately six students from Marist’s Honors Program present their research at the NCHC Conference. Students interested in participating in the conference should contact the program director, Dr. James G. Snyder, at
