All this week Elon University students, faculty and staff will take part in CELEBRATE! a weeklong celebration for students in academics and the arts. The week will include Programs seminars, art exhibitions, plays, a film festival, dance and music performance all presented by students and faculty.CELEBRATE!

Tuesday all classes will be cancelled to allow students to partake in the annual Student undergraduate Research Forum, also know as SURF day.

Students will present on a variety of topics and many of them have been researching these topics for months.

Senior Ben Smith will present on “The Difference in the Experiences of Male and Female Beginning Elementary School Teachers.” As an early education major Smith has had a lot of interest in this topic.

“I have put a lot of time into my research,” said Smith. “Many of my friends have been wondering where I have been all semester so I am hoping all my hard work pays off.”

Smith also presented his research this month at the National Conference on Undergraduate Research at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. His findings are based on interviews with female and male beginning elementary school teachers, and from scouring existing research, which uncovered several major themes.

Students will present all day on Tuesday and topics range from “Dioxin and Dopamine Alter Swimming Behavior in Larval Zebra Fish” to “The Glamorization of Cyberbullying in Gossip Girl.” Faculty presentations will take place between nine and ten a.m. and student presentation will begin just after that, taking place all across campus.
