Throughout the year, Colorado State University recognizes and honors the achievements of students in the areas of research and creativity. Students are invited to participate in a variety of events that will provide them an opportunity to showcase what they have learned through their research and creative activities. In the 2006-2007 school year, events culminated in the Celebrate Undergraduate Research and Creativity Showcase.
The event was held on Tuesday, April 17, at the Lory Student Center and was judged by CSU faculty and staff.
Students receiving honors were recognized at the Awards Ceremony on Wednesday, April 18, in the Albert C. Yates Hall.
