Research is an essential part of the undergraduate experience at UNCG and at the Residential Colleges in particular. Regardless of their majors or career paths, our students learn from our faculty the importance of scholarly inquiry and are encouraged to first ask important questions and then seek creative and innovative ways to find the answers. In this magazine, we present a sampling of the projects our sophomore, emerging researchers are producing in the Residential Colleges written by students in the Capstone Courses of Ashby and Strong Residential Colleges. Together they are shining examples of the high quality of work being produced by our undergraduate students. The name of the magazine, Minerva, pays homage to the Roman goddess of wisdom, who has served as an unofficial mascot since the school opened in 1893. The image of Minerva has graced every diploma, appears on the official college seal, and welcomes visitors with open arms from the east courtyard of the Elliott University Center. And in these pages, we offer stories that reflect UNCG’s dedication to academic excellence and creative inquiry.
