As part of the Research Fellows opportunity offered through the UHL program, Mandy Wong (Philosophy, 2013) and Tamara Lhungay (Biology, 2014), have been working with Dr. Manuel Espinoza on the Right to Learn project. On November 15 to November 18, they presented their research at the National Collegiate Honors Council’s national conference. The conference is a place for different honors programs to exchange ideas via presentations.

Dr. Espinoza applied and used UROP funding for them to go to the conference. Their presentation lasted 50 minutes and Mandy and Tamara spoke about their experiences as students within a research setting.

“We started with a W. E. B. Du Bois excerpt about the right to learn to lead discussion during our presentation,” Mandy said. “We wanted to show the audience our meeting styles.”

Other presentations included the sexuality of unicorns and zombies. Unfortunately, our group of UHL students missed the zombie presentation because they mixed up which room it was being presented in. They also went on a unicorn hunt for Boston cream pie, but that was another disappointment as they didn’t get a chance to find or eat any.
