by roanokecollege on October 18, 2011

Twenty-two Roanoke College students presented at MARCUS (Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference of Undergraduate Scholarship) on October 8, 2012. After some directional difficulty, both RC vans and several student-driven cars made it just on time for the first presentations of the day. For a $25/student registration fee, presenters received a continental breakfast, a free lunch, and a full day of student and faculty camaraderie.
