Wellsville's Miles presents research at Cornell College's Student Symposium


MOUNT VERNON, Iowa -- Cornell College's 21st annual Student Symposium on April 22 served as a venue for some of the college's most accomplished students to share their work, including Linden Miles of Wellsville.

The symposium, which has been an academic highlight at Cornell College since 1997, features students' original research through oral and poster presentations. Each student participant works closely with a faculty sponsor in developing the presentations. The projects, many of which are initiated by students, generally take several months to prepare.

One of the "Colleges That Change Lives," Cornell College in Mount Vernon, Iowa, is a national liberal arts college with a distinctive One Course At A Time curriculum.
