Undergraduate Research and Scholarship Symposium
Hillary Cox, an undergraduate double major in Classical Civilizations and English, won the top prize of $500 at Duquesne's annual Undergraduate Research and Scholarship Symposium in April 2012. Her paper, "The Immaculate Conception of Mary," was written for Dr. Sarah Miller's WSGS/CLSX course, Greek, Roman, and Medieval Mothers. We congratulate Hillary on this tremendous achievement, and we wish to recognize Dr. Sarah Miller, who mentored Hillary as she drafted her paper and abstract for the Symposium.
