Aquinas Students Present at St. John Fisher College's Student Research & Creative Work Symposium
Aquinas seniors Nick Annechino and Caty Collins recently participated in St. John Fisher College's Student Research & Creative Work Symposium, which invited high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors to research a topic of their choice and present a research project alongside college students.
Nick Annechino, who will be attending the University of Rochester this fall to study Neuroscience and play football for the YellowJackets, explored "CTE and Concussions in Sports." Caty Collins, who is attending East Carolina University to study Nutrition and Dietetics, presented "Anorexia Nervosa-A Daily Struggle." Both students began researching their topics during junior year and would tell any student who follows them to choose a topic that they’re passionate about.
Aquinas Dean of Students, Bob Higgins ’02, who mentored Nick and Caty throughout the process said, “The Symposium was a way to celebrate their research and share it with outside representatives as they move onto the next chapter of their journey as students. We’re very proud of the work Nick and Caty put into their research projects, and for taking advantage of this wonderful opportunity provided by St. John Fisher.”
