Students contribute independent research to college knowledge base

The graduation designation "with honors research distinction" recognizes students who have demonstrated excellence through major course work and by completing an independent research project culminating in an honors thesis. Students graduate "with honors research distinction" when their cumulative grade point average (GPA) is 3.5 or higher.

Education and Human Ecology Undergraduate Student Services recently recognized the Class of 2014 students who successfully completed their undergraduate honors theses.

The students were among the 10,200 graduates who streamed into Ohio Stadium on May 4 to receive their diplomas.

"We are so proud of the research that these students have contributed to our college," said Dean Cheryl Achterberg. "I know that they will go on to make a significant impact on the way the world works."

"I would like to thank the students' faculty advisors who mentored our students," said Assistant Dean Jennifer Klosterman-Lando, who directs Undergraduate Student Services in the college.

All undergraduate theses are published to the Libraries’ KnowledgeBank after Spring Commencement 2014. The Class of 2014 students who completed their undergraduate honors theses are:
