Posters in the Rotunda
Seven University of Wisconsin-Green Bay students joined their peers from across the UW System at the State Capitol March 7, showcasing their undergraduate research during the annual Posters in the Rotunda event.
From invasive species to flax cultivation and recycling efforts at Green Bay Packers home games, the students — all UW-Green Bay seniors — shared their findings with state legislators, UW System officials and like-minded students from other System schools.
UW-Green Bay Provost Julia Wallace was on hand for the event, viewing research, handing out certificates of recognition and having lunch with the students. The group also met with UW System President Kevin Reilly, discussing their posters and future plans.
