Nicholls student projects to be displayed as part of Expeaux

THIBODAUX, La. — Nicholls State University invites the public to view student research projects with topics ranging from the forensic analysis of a WWI-era pharmacy to the nautical origins of the first Acadian settlers in the parish as part of the 2018 Student Expeaux.

In total, Expeaux, which is a yearly display of student research and creative activity, will showcase around 70 projects. Nicholls Arts and Sciences Dean Dr. John Doucet said he expects the participation record to be broken for the second year in a row. Student projects are judged and receive awards in a variety of categories.

Dr. Doucet invites Nicholls faculty, staff, students and the community to view the projects from 5 to 6 p.m. Wednesday, April 25, in the Cotillion Ballroom in the Bollinger Memorial Student Union.

Expeaux gives Nicholls students the opportunity to show off their projects, receive feedback from the judges and learn from each others’ projects.

“It’s important for us to provide students opportunities to understand the benefits and rewards of research and creative work, as well as the skills necessary to manage projects,” Dr. Doucet said. “Students can now demonstrate to employers and graduate or professional school committees that they can manage projects to fruition, write about results, problem solve and be creative.”
