VERMILLION, S.D. (AP) — Two University of South Dakota students will be among a number of undergraduates from South Dakota colleges and universities who will present their research work during an annual event at the state Capitol.
Breanna Helland, a senior from Frederick and Nate Vinzant, a junior from Sioux Falls, were selected by USD faculty to display their outstanding research during the 2015 Student Research Poster Session.
2015 marks the 18th year for the poster session, which features students from public, private and tribal colleges pursuing research in a variety of disciplines.
Helland’s poster proposes a policy recommendation for South Dakota addressing human trafficking. Vinzant’s poster describes the anxiety that individuals experience when attempting to stop drug abuse.
The event is scheduled for March 5. Last year, 13 undergraduate students presented their work.
