Ridgefield Resident August Heminway Showcases Project at Research and Creative Activity Day

August Heminway of Ridgefield was one of 121 SUNY Oneonta students who participated in the 2023 Student Research and Creative Activity showcase from Wednesday, April 26, to Thursday, April 27.

The annual SRCA showcase allows students to participate in academic conference-style presentation sessions on campus where the community can learn about students' creative projects. The two-day event featured 69 presentations and was held in the Morris Conference Center on campus.

Students presented research for completed and ongoing projects on topics representing a wide variety of academic disciplines such as science, history and art. Projects were completed under the mentorship of 45 faculty sponsors. Eighteen of the 69 projects received grants through the Student Grant Program for Research and Creative Activity, funded by the University Foundation and the SUNY Oneonta Alumni Association.

Heminway presented "A Rural Devotion."

"This was a great celebration of the research and creative activities that our students have been engaged in," said Associate Director of Scholarly Activities Audrey Porsche, who coordinated this year's SRCA showcase. "It's all supported by our generous alumni through the University Foundation and Alumni Association, which is really amazing. Their support helps provide the wonderful opportunity to recognize the work our students have done and are completing under faculty mentorship. With the students and faculty working together, they're getting experiences that will help them post-graduation, whether it's going on to graduate school, internships or careers. It's all applied learning!"
