Westminster McNair Scholars Attend UC Berkeley Symposium

Ten Westminster McNair Scholars traveled to Berkeley, CA early in August to present their summer research projects at the 24th Annual McNair Scholars Symposium.  They were able to network with and attend the presentations of hundreds of McNair Scholars from across the country, visit either Stanford or UC Davis, and speak with recruiters at the graduate school fair.  The symposium offered a number of cultural performances, and ended with a dinner cruise on San Francisco Bay.  This event was the culmination of a busy summer full of research, graduate preparation seminars, and GRE Prep classes.  One of our students commented, “I really enjoyed the opportunity to meet with other scholars and share research ideas….The sense of community at this conference was really wonderful.”
