Adam Oulton of Aurora is among a record number of students who presented their research on Feb. 20 as part of Heidelberg University's 21st annual "Minds @ Work" Student Research Conference.
Oulton, a senior majoring in anthropology and political science, presented "An Ethic of Friendship in a Self-Interested World: Responses to Dr. Muhammad Mahallati" (co-presenting) and "The Dreams of Rome."
Heidelberg hosts the Student Research Conference annually each spring as a way to increase student interest and knowledge in academic research and scholarship.
The event is designed to recognize, honor and reward academic excellence and give students an opportunity to experience the conference format of academic inquiry.
Each student is paired with a faculty mentor/adviser who assists in the research and presentation preparation process.
