Local student Andrew Wood presented research at the 38th-annual Beloit College Student Symposium on April 17. The title of the research is “Engaging the Other as Monster, the Monster as Other.”

Symposium Day at Beloit College is an academic forum at which students publicly present their research to the college community. All classes are cancelled to allow students, faculty and staff to attend the presentations.

Topics range from scientific studies to interpretations of literary works.

Each of the nearly 90 students participating in the program prepare a half-hour oral presentation or make poster presentations of original research conducted during the 2013-2014 academic year.

Symposium Day participants are honored at a closing reception.

Beloit College is a residential, liberal arts college 90 miles northwest of Chicago.
