The College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences hosted the 14th Annual CFAES Undergraduate Research Forum on February 28 in the Nationwide/Farm Bureau 4-H building. Forty-four undergraduate student researchers from CFAES and the School of Environment and Natural Resources shared their research in a poster presentation format with faculty, staff, fellow students, and invited family members and guests, with 42 faculty judges evaluating and ranking the presentations.
