Alcorn to participate in inaugural Posters in the Rotunda competition

Students from Alcorn State University will take part in a competition that will display their talent for research and innovative thinking.

Alcorn will compete against Mississippi’s other universities at the inaugural Posters in the Rotunda competition Thursday, March 24 at the State Capitol in Jackson. The competition is a showcase of undergraduate research and scholarly activity being conducted at the eight universities in the state. The event provides opportunities for legislators to visit with students from their districts, allow students to network with each other as they learn about work on other campuses and bring recognition to the cutting edge research being done by undergraduates that benefits the residents of Mississippi.

Director for Alcorn’s Office of Pre-Professional and Honors Programs, Dr. Thomas Sturgis, looks forward to watching the students put forth their best effort.

“There is tremendous potential reflected in the work of our students who will showcase their abilities at the State Capitol,” said Sturgis. “Our students across several disciplines develop and shape ideas that will make a positive and lasting impact nationally and globally.”
