Reed, Alexander, and Hanlon give papers at Communitas 2017
On Wednesday, March 29th, Grace College held its annual student research day, which spotlights exemplary papers and projects from across the disciplines. Students, parents, and administrators gathered for this academic marketplace, which featured a launch party for the campus literary magazine and a film showing to boot. As in years past, the program included many particularly strong papers and remarkable research. Students from the Department of History and Political Science have given papers every year since the inception of Communitas in 2010. Every senior in the department takes the “Capstone” seminar for which they write a senior thesis and Communitas is a great forum for seniors to share their work.
