Alenda Lux Celebration Highlights Student Scholarship and Creative Work


*** music playing *** The Alenda Lux symposium is really a
way in which Davidson College can honor all of the great creative student work
that happens here. My research was looking at a new type of DNA sequencing. …articulating explorations of Asian-American identity… so at this Alenda Lux I presented my final capstone research for my major and it was titled, “They will never let us forget who we are”
a GIS and environmental justice analysis
of asbestos exposure in Davidson. So in Alenda Lux I was able to participate
with both of my majors. I am a trombonist and I play with Davidson College brass
ensemble. So we had a performance at the library that was about a thirty minute
performance. But then later that afternoon I went to present my research for my
Environmental Studies major in the Natural Science poster session. Davidson gives students the ability to utilize equipment and ask questions that some graduate students are not even asking or faculty elsewhere are not even asking. Davidson is an institution that really shines as far as letting undergraduates have autonomous research. Our ability to work almost on a peer level with faculty to have our own projects that we think independently about is something that you really don’t see at other institutions. So it’s really exciting to
get to celebrate that with other students and hear what they’re doing.
