Birmingham-Southern students present research papers at US symposium

BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—Two Birmingham-Southern College students recently participated in the 2nd annual Associated Colleges of the South Undergraduate Research Symposium in Classics, and had their research presented as part of the event.

Scottey Jones of Homewood, a senior biology major, and Sarah Romines of Decatur, a junior biology major, joined faculty and peers from six other ACS schools to present research material from an ACS-sponsored excavation in Turkey as well as from their senior theses. The symposium was held April 2-3 at the University of the South in Sewanee, Tenn.

ACS is a consortium of 16 liberal arts colleges and universities in 12 Southern states that work cooperatively to strengthen academic programs of the member institutions and to promote to others the nature of a liberal arts education and the vital role it plays in society.
