Students completing honors in undergraduate thesis work are required to seek out an Environmental Design faculty member to chair their thesis committee. On Monday, Oct. 4, ENVD honors students switched it up. During a chair mixer, hosted in third-floor studio space, each student rotated between other chairs from different disciplines to gain interdisciplinary perspectives on their research question and methods.
Given constraints of five minutes using five slides, students had to convey their entire process to an outside faculty professional. Honors thesis students will integrate the feedback into their work, which they'll continue to revise until the final presentation is due in early December. In the spring, students will present their concluded research at the Honors Symposium in March.
