ENGELPALOOZA: Biochemistry's Undergraduate Research Showcase Event


Our first Engelpalooza was a success!!!

In the Fall of 2019 there were more than 100 people who came to watch students present their various research projects. The hall was packed with students, faculty, and  staff. There was discussion, laughter, and questions all around. 

At the end of the event poster competition winners were announced
First place was Nathan Otto, who is a first year transfer student.
Second and third place went to senior Tanner DeHart and senior Jared Okada, respectively.
People's choice went to junior and Peer Mentor Kevin Williams. 


We would like to thank all Biochemistry Peer Mentors, Graduate Students, Staff, and Faculty who worked diligently to make this event happen. 


We also would like to congratulate T-shirt raffle winners:

We look forward to seeing you all at the next Engelpalooza!
