Rucking for a Reason — Liberty ROTC members and Liberty students “rucked” donated goods 3.5 miles to Park View Community Mission April 27.
Roughly 350 students participated in Research Week (April 15-19), a five-day event featuring Liberty University students’ efforts in academic research. More than 100 programs of study were represented, and participants, ranging from freshman to graduate students, showcased their study.
Dr. Darren Wu, the associate director for the Center for Research and Scholarship said this year’s Research Week was a tremendous success due to the growing interest of Liberty’s body. The annual event, which is not required for students, doubled in size since last year to 225 presentations.
“The quality of the research, scholarship and creativity activity has also increased significantly,” Wu said. “We are grateful for the support of our volunteer faculty judges, including several senior academic leaders.”
