The annual Spring Student Research Symposium features the work of more than 40 student researchers on 23 different posters, and will be held on Thursday, April 18, from 3:30 –5  pm in the Winter Hall Atrium.  

“I’m looking forward to seeing the work our students have been doing this year,” says Michael Everest, interim dean and chemistry professor. “One of the hallmarks of a Westmont education is the opportunity for undergraduate students to work directly with faculty on research projects.”

The research projects span topics that include adverse childhood experiences, toxic friendships, body size and seat belts, running on slanted surfaces, ADHD’s effect on patients with Alzheimer’s, and subliminal advertising.

Westmont researchers include: Aidan Holly (‘24), Alan Lopez (‘26), Anna Scheider (‘25), Anneline Breytenbach (‘24), Braden Chaffin (‘23), Ciboney Hellenbrand (‘24), Daniel Johnson (‘24), Daniel Rafeedie (‘24), Eden Hagen (‘24), Elise Kilmer (‘26), Elise Short (‘25), Emery Oneale (‘24), Grant Lockhart (‘24), Harrison Bruggeman (‘23), Isabella Felix (‘26), Isabella Tejeda (‘24), Jackson Zerwas (‘26), Jane E. Nakamura (‘24), Jong Min Park (‘24), Jordan Ogawa (‘24), Joseph Chandra (‘24), Karla Muñoz (‘24), Kennedy Burkett (‘26), Lilia Allen (‘24), Lillian Reininga (‘24), Logan Jackson (‘24), Mariyan Popov (‘24), Mason Feagin (‘25), Meredith Gibson (‘25), Natalie Fogg (‘24), Nolan Brandt (‘24), Noor Guefroudj (‘24), Rachel Lorson (‘22), Reese Toepfer (‘26), Riley Potter (‘24), Sarah Bean (‘24), Sarah Remland (‘25), Sofia Alvarado (‘24), Sophia Chan (‘25), and Trevi Bryant (‘25).
