HIGH POINT, N.C., Nov. 11, 2016 – High Point University students shared their research at the State of North Carolina Undergraduate Research and Creativity Symposium on Nov. 5 at North Carolina Central University in Durham. Their participation was sponsored by HPU’s Office of Undergraduate Research and Creative Works.

“At HPU, we encourage students to get involved in research as undergraduates because of the valuable critical thinking, problem solving and communication skills they gain,” says Joanne Altman, director of undergraduate research and creative works. “These are the skills they’ll need to be successful in their future. By doing their own independent research and presenting at conferences, they earn the credentials that help them stand out when applying for jobs or graduate school.”

HPU students who presented research at the symposium are as follows:

 

 

Senior Jordan Izzo, a psychology major, presents his research poster, “Self-Conceptualization in Rekindled Relationships: How One’s Ideal and Actual Self Perceptions Relate to On-Again/Off-Again Relationships.”
