Ten students from Raritan Valley Community College’s Honors College presented their independent Capstone Research Course projects during a May 1 symposium at the College’s Branchburg campus.

Project topics ran the gamut of subjects—from “Proving that Drones and Aerial Media have Positively Affected the United States Real Estate Market,” to “Self-Solving Rubik’s Cube,” to “Union Voter Dynamics: Analyzing and Understanding Voting Patterns Among Union Members,” to “Musical Seasons in Modern Times,” to “Quantitative Analysis and Optimization of Local Emergency Response,” to “The Science of Music: a Spectrum of Emotion and Memory,” and more.

The Capstone Research Course is designed to guide sophomore Honors College students from all disciplines through the stages of researching and writing a major research paper or project, or developing an artistic pursuit. The students are mentored by faculty members and present their work at the end of the semester.

Launched in 2011, RVCC’s Honors College serves highly qualified high school graduates who are entering college for the first time. Honors College students benefit from being in small classes with similarly academically motivated students. Students in the program are taught by a select group of faculty. The Honors College features a cohort-based program with smaller, seminar-style courses that have an interdisciplinary focus and afford students the opportunity to develop a close working relationship with their professors.

To learn more about the Honors College, attend an Honors College Information Session, May 15, at 6 p.m. The program will be held in the RVCC Event Center. The May event is the final Honors College Information Session scheduled before the program’s late application July 1 deadline.
