UWRF students shine at UW System Symposium

May 6, 2015

Two UW-River Falls undergraduates received outstanding presentation awards at the 14th annual UW System Symposium for Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on April 24.

Senior Ryan Ruegsegger of Monticello, Wisconsin, received an outstanding presentation award for his project, "China's Dairyman," and Senior Joshua Gustafson of Minocqua, Wisconsin, received an outstanding presentation award for his short film, "How to Horror: The Differences between American and Japanese Horror."

Both Ruegsegger and Gustafson developed their projects through a course-embedded research assignment in Associate Professor Lissa Schneider-Rebozo's global perspectives "Modern East Asian Literature and Cinema" course.

There were more than 650 undergraduate presentations at the symposium this year (breaking the prior UW System record of 450) and only 15 awards were given.
