Fifteen students from Raritan Valley Community College’s Honors College presented their independent Capstone Research Course projects during a symposium, held May 3 at the College’s Branchburg campus.

Project topics ran the gamut of subjects—from “Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease Research Paper and Animation,” to “Computerization of the Influential Youth: Technology Changing a Child’s Future,” to “Behind the Scenes of a Serial Killer,” to “The Post-Antibiotic Era: An Exploration of Antibiotics,” to “Solar Reflectors and Solar Concentrators,” to “Why Capital Punishment Should be Abolished,” and many 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.
