    Tayler's Bio:
    My name is Tayler and I was an English major/biology minor at the College of St. Scholastica! I have lived in Duluth all of my life so I know all the best local restaurants and hiking trails. On campus, I was involved with The Cable, Bella Voce, the Northstar Reports, the McNair Scholars Program, Student Support Services, and the English & Arts Club. Off campus, I volunteered with Mentor Duluth and enjoy throwing theme parties with friends and family.

National Conference on Undergraduate Research: Day Two


Day two is just as busy but luckily we got some more sleep this round! We started the morning with breakfast on the Memphis Campus and a morning poster session. I met students from all over the country and learned about marketing, pit bull stereotypes, egocentrism, volunteer work in youth, family attachment, anxiety, depression, youth gang involvement, and so much more. Following the poster presentation, we attended a speech by Santosh Kumar, a Professor of Computer Science at the Univeristy of Memphis and nationally recognized “brilliant” researcher. He informed us on some technological advances in “smart technology” and how that relates to health. There was some really cool stuff: quitting smoking with an app, reporting your heart rate to your phone, and more. Following the presentation, it was my turn to present! I presented my research, A Rhetorical Analysis of the Still I Rise Benefit Concert, in a poster presentation filled with people. I met people from Minnesota, Wisconsin, Ohio, Tennessee, other U.S. States, and even Japan. For lunch, we joined a friendly group of Texan gals who shared their research with us as well as some things they are passionate about. After a few more presentations we headed back to downtown Memphis for delicious dinner and some exploring! We found many great shops and got some cliche tourist gifts as well.
