WHEELING, W.Va. -- This year marks the 15th anniversary since Wheeling Jesuit University students began showing off their research and scholarship abilities to the public at the Student Research and Scholarship Symposium.
Students in all majors spent Tuesday presenting their work.  
Opening ceremonies were held in Troy Theater, located inside Swint Hall, where keynote speaker James Paulick, spoke to students.
Students then went to classrooms in various classrooms to make presentations.
"What began as a two-hour poster session in the hallways of Donahue Hall back in 1999 has since flourished into a full day's event encompassing the best that WJU has to offer in terms of student research and scholarship," said WJU Director of Undergraduate Research Dr. Bryan Raudenbush.
"This year features over 100 presentations from more than 120 students, which is a record breaker for our 15th anniversary," said Raudenbush.
The Symposium will end with an evening presentation by three seniors competing for the prestigious Rev. Frank R. Haig, S.J. Science award, to be announced at commencement. Fr. Haig served as WJU's third president from 1966-72.
Haig recipients receive a medal along with a $2,500 prize.  
Leaders at WJU say more than 50 percent of WJU undergraduates participate in research with faculty members compared to fewer than 20 percent nationally.
