Bryant Davis Elementary

College of Architecture, Design and Construction students won several awards for their creative scholarship at the This is Research: Student Symposium on April 20, 2015.

“The CADC student participants in this symposium and the faculty mentors who supported them are doing a fabulous job helping to increase awareness across campus of the contributions of our college to creative scholarship and research,” says Karen Rogers, Associate Dean for Graduate Studies and Research. “This was a highly competitive event: more than 300 students presented their work, and only 27 awards were given. Not all of the CADC students who participated received an award, but all of the work presented by our students was outstanding and provided insight into the quality and professionalism produced by our students and faculty on a daily basis. This is the CADC, and it is awesome indeed!”
