Northwestern Ranger Research Day set for April 3

March 30, 2009

Ranger Research Day will take place in the Student Center Ballroom on Friday, April 3, at 9 a.m., at Northwestern Oklahoma State University. The public is invited to view the research projects at 10:30 a.m.

This event is a preliminary to Oklahoma Research Day, a statewide/regional research event.

Set-up may begin late Thursday afternoon or early Friday morning. Judging will begin at 9 a.m. The event will conclude with a brief awards ceremony at approximately 11:30 a.m., after which posters may be removed.

“I want to encourage the public to come to campus to view the research posters,” Dr. Rod Murrow, associate dean of graduate studies, said.

“We have 16 projects that will be on display, including 10 in psychology, two in biology, and one each in English, history, political science, and sociology and substance abuse studies,” Murrow said.

Faculty sponsors of student projects include Dr. Mark Davis, professor of psychology; Kathy Earnest, instructor of English; Dr. Roger Hardaway, professor of history; Dr. Nancy Knous, professor of psychology; Dr. Wayne McMillin, professor of psychology; Dr. Aaron Place, assistant professor of biology; and Rae Wilson, assistant professor of social work.

Faculty members who are submitting research projects of their own include Dr. Aaron Mason, assistant professor of political science; McMillin; Place; Dr. Eric Schmaltz, assistant professor of history; and Dr. Tony Wohlers.

Guests are welcome to park in lots off of Eighth Street, on the west side of campus, and in one just north of Herod Hall, located just east of Daylight Donuts with an entrance off College Avenue. Parking in the “horseshoe” around Herod Hall is reserved for those with faculty stickers only.
