Volume 18 (2017)

I am pleased to announce the 2017 edition of The Review: A Journal of Undergraduate Research and Scholarship. The journal highlights the best research and scholarship done at St. John Fisher College in the past year by our undergraduate students. This year’s edition of The Review contains eight thoroughly researched and well-written papers from many of the different disciplines of study at the College.

The editorial team worked very hard every step of the way from marketing and reviewing to formatting and finalizing the logistics of our release. I would like to thank the faculty members who assisted the board in the review of all the submissions we received. Finally, I would like to especially thank The Review’s faculty advisor Dr. Bissonette who worked tirelessly throughout the process which allowed us to bring you this year’s edition.
