Waldorf College students to present research on April 16 and 17

Waldorf College

Forest City, Iowa – Ten Waldorf College students will present their research on a range of subjects to the Waldorf and Forest City community at the Student Inquirere on April 16 and 17.

The free event will be divided into five presentations each day and will be held at 6 p.m. in the Odvin Hagen Recital Hall on Monday, April 16 and at 6 p.m. in the college’s “Small Pit” classroom next to the Atrium on Tuesday, April 17.

“This is a great opportunity for the students to be able to share their research with others,” said Dr. Suzanne Falck-Yi, associate professor of English at Waldorf College and organizer of the Inquirere. “It helps them develop professional skills of preparing for a public presentation. It also helps younger students see a model of more advanced research.”
