Grad Students win "3-Minute Thesis" Awards


SUMMARY: Grad Students win "3-Minute Thesis" Awards

During this week’s Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition, JMU graduate students presented their scholarship before an audience and panel of judges.  They were allowed one slide, no props, and they had to present their research in a precise and compelling way.  The Graduate School congratulates the winners of our Three-Minute Thesis (3MT) competition:
