Students work in a science laboratorySaint Anselm students are writing, performing, studying, researching, and creating. The results of their work include thesis papers, paintings, posters, and more, all of which are on display this month as part of SOAR, a celebration of student achievement.

Nearly 200 students from 29 majors are recognized for their hard work through SOAR. The purpose of the annual month-long event is to foster excellence in undergraduate scholarship, creative work, and research in the sciences, social sciences and humanities, according to biology professor Daniel Broek, a member of the SOAR committee.

Three distinguished speakers are part of the event, and many alumni are returning to campus to participate in panels and presentations related to their current work.

Cameron P. Wake of the University of New Hampshire's Sustainability Institute and its Institute for the Study of Earth, Oceans and Space, is one of this year's science speakers. He will discuss climate change in New England on Thursday, April 8 at 4 p.m. in Perini Lecture Hall.

Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Fredrik Logevall will speak about the meaning of the Vietnam War on April 15. Victor Ambros, of the University of Massachusetts Medical School, will discuss molecular science on April 24.
