Saint Mary's students present at the Capitol

Five students headed to the Minnesota State Capitol Rotunda on Tuesday, April 8, to present the results of their independent research and creative scholarship at the annual Minnesota Private College Scholars at the Capitol event.

The Minnesota Private College Council hosts this event to publicize and celebrate the achievements of just a few of the thousands of students who attend 15 private schools of higher learning in Minnesota, and to share research that may have long-term implications for Minnesotans.

This event showcased current research projects completed by more than 40 undergraduate scholars from Minnesota private colleges and universities. Saint Mary’s students attending this year’s event included:

• Amy Spitzmueller — “Heavy Metal Analysis of Bluegill (Lepomis macrochius) from East Lake Winona”
• Ryan Diak, Amanda Lindholm, Danielle Pues and Rim Woldeslassie — “From Cradle to Grave: Does Mortality Salience Facilitate a Preference for Our Own Attachment Styles?”
