I am very pleased to announce the 2018 publication of The Review, St. John Fisher College’s journal for undergraduate research and scholarship. The journal represents the academic excellence of St. John Fisher College’s undergraduate programs.
This year’s submissions came from a wide range of academic disciplines. We received many fantastic submissions and had some very difficult decisions to make. I would like to thank both the student and faculty reviewers on the Editorial Board for their commitment to The Review and the time they spent reading all the submissions.
I would also like to congratulate the Editorial Staff on their hard work. As a staff, we solicited, selected, and edited the contributions, as well as making policy decisions about the publication. Finally, I would like to thank our faculty advisor, Dr. Melissa Bissonette, for her dedication to The Review and the Honors Program. We all strive for success and appreciate her enthusiasm.
Congratulations to all our authors, especially Antonia Piccirillo for winning the Provost’s Award for Best Paper.
