Students Present Research at Honors Symposium


Four Guilford College Honors Program students presented their research Friday, Feb. 27, at a University of North Carolina at Greensboro honors symposium.

Katie Fullerton ’16, who is majoring in religious studies and health sciences, won the second-place Visitors’ Honors Symposium Prize for her presentation, which was based on a paper, “Neoshamanism and Empiricism: An Uneasy Relationship,” written for Associate Professor Eric Mortensen’s shamanism course in fall 2013. The paper won the Religious Studies Departmental Writing Award for that academic year.

The other presenters were Emily Van Haneghan ’15, who is majoring in political science and peace & conflict studies; Eli Cloonan ’15, who is majoring in history; ; and Yves Dusenge ’17, who is majoring in computer science, had their research papers accepted and made presentations at the Lloyd International Honors College Honors Symposium. The event attracted a large audience of faculty and students from five local institutions.
