HACKETTSTOWN, NJ—Centenary University showcased outstanding research and professional experiences by 19 students at its annual Academic Symposium on Thursday, April 6, 2023. At Centenary, student researchers and interns are mentored by faculty who are experts in their fields.

“Independent research and professional experiences are hallmarks of the Centenary University academic experience,” explained David Dauwalder, Ph.D., interim vice president for academic affairs. “Working alongside faculty members, Centenary students develop important career skills, including problem-solving, critical thinking, statistical analysis, and presentation. Smaller universities like Centenary offer unique research opportunities that aren’t often available to undergraduates at larger universities. That sets our graduates apart on applications for graduate and veterinary school, as well as employers.”
