AOP Summer Presentations at Milne!

Milne Library is once again helping to prepare AOP’s Summer Program students for their academic life by guiding them in a research project and poster session.  Congratulations to everyone for all their hard work!

Students created posters with their research findings on a topic related to the theme of civic engagement and the ideas contained in the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.

Slideshow link is at AOP Summer 2019.

More information about the AOP Program is at  https://www.geneseo.edu/aop

Here are comments made by visitors in past years:

  • “I enjoyed talking to the students about their projects. They were lively and thoughtful in their explanations.”
  • “All of the posters looked great and I enjoyed seeing the look of pride on the students’ faces as they talked about their work.”
  • “I thoroughly enjoyed it 🙂  I am always so impressed by our students and love opportunities to interact with them.”
  • “The students were very well prepared and well informed.”
