During the 2017-18 academic year, more than 600 Longwood students were hard at work studying everything from the morphology of bacterial magnetic crystals to Andrew Jackson and the nullification crisis. Their research was showcased in the second annual Spring Symposium for Research and Creative Inquiry. Longwood didn’t hold classes that day so students, faculty, staff and interested community members could learn about all the research being done on campus. “We take undergraduate research very seriously at Longwood—there aren’t many universities out there where students have the kind of access to faculty that our students enjoy from day one,” said Dr. Amorette Barber, biology professor and coordinator of the symposium.
