The Celebration of Research included faculty, student/faculty and faculty/faculty research and creative scholarship, as well as a number of J.N. Andrews Honors student projects. "Now that I've done research, I appreciate it all the much more. Research might seem dull and boring, but it's actually just the opposite. It's interactive and interesting. Research is all about making a difference in your field: bringing new light to a topic, or changing the old assumptions surrounding it," says Kellee Krautwurst, a speech-language pathology & audiology major an Honors student.

Sidewalk Advertisement of REVO
This social justice activity is in part organized by Honors student Eliel Cruz-Lopez.

Sidewalk art crept across campus today promoting REVO. But what is REVO you might ask? Find out this week as REVO starts to sweep across campus. On Tuesday, you will see some students with duct tape covering their mouths. Ask them “Why?” Attend the Invisible Children Bill Rally on Wednesday, Nov. 18, from 4-7 p.m. in the Faculty Lounge to learn how REVO is taking aim at raising awareness for child soldiers caught in the crosshairs of war. Then, on Thursday, Nov. 19, put all the REVO pieces together at Chapel with a short video presentation prior to the featured speaker, Lake Union President Don Livesay. That night, REVO will host a photo show in Harrigan Hall from 7-10 p.m. (From Week in Pictures)
