Lima Undergraduate Research Forum
The Ohio State Lima Undergraduate Research Forum is designed to encourage students to actively engage in research. Research can take many forms including scientific research, surveys and essays, artistic creations and students are encouraged to participate in all forms. The main event is a poster presentation where students present their work together, followed by oral presentations scheduled individually or in small groups based on discipline.
Student research projects for the 2020 Undergraduate Research Forum are available virtually. Topics on display include anxiety reduction, evidence of a new species of mountain vole, effects of burning on prairie biomass, improving population health, connection between beliefs about addiction and intention to seek treatment, how actors manifest a character’s emotions, connection between parental education and spanking, and factors influencing survival rates in birds.
Beyond the Lima Campus Forum, participation in the Denman Undergraduate Research Forum, the Spring Undergraduate Research Festival, the University Libraries Undergraduate Research Fellowship, or publication in JUROS are all strongly encouraged, although faculty and students are welcome to pursue any appropriate forum for their discipline that will showcase undergraduate research.
