Philosophy 496 Presentations

This year’s Philosophy 496 (Senior Capstone) presentations were a success!  Robert Belle, Peter Dziadowicz, Leah Heilman, Cheyenne-Christine Laukant, Jesse Pingel, Michelle Roche, Larry Schmitt, and Lauren Schuller presented the research projects they have been working on all semester. Special thanks to Dr. Glass for running 496 this semester and organizing the event, and Dr. Scherwitz for making sure that there was plenty of food to fuel our philosophical efforts!

This year, we have photographic evidence of our 496 presentations. Enjoy!
