A total of 20 summer research students kept Cleaveland and Druckenmiller Halls alive with activity this summer. Each Friday there was pizza for lunch and students would present their work. The final poster presentation of Summer Research Projects took place in the Atrium of Druckenmiller, on October 3, 2008.
