Current Volume: Volume 23 (2022)
Along with the editorial board, we are pleased to present the 2022 edition of The Review: A Journal of Undergraduate Research and Scholarship. This volume of The Review presents a diverse selection of research written by undergraduate students at St. John Fisher College. This prestigious journal allows us to highlight the impressive efforts of the selected writers and their continuous fervor for learning and education of their audiences.
While the selection process for publication is often difficult, as many of the submissions exceed expectations, each was thoroughly discussed and contemplated with our team of reviewers. After much deliberation, and repeated evaluation of over 20 candidates, we determined which of these are considered to be the most thought-provoking for the reader to experience. We are more than appreciative for the commitment these authors have to their work and commend them for their dedication.
We extend our sincerest gratitude to the members of the Editorial Board for their relentless diligence and their substantial contribution to the creation of this edition. To our advisor, Fionnuala Regan, we would like to show our appreciation. This volume would not have been successful without her guidance. Lastly, we would like to thank our faculty reviewers for volunteering their time and expertise to ensure that both accurate and opportune research was presented to the public.
Congratulations to all of our published authors, especially Natalie Petruzelli for being this year’s recipient of the Provost’s Award for Best Paper!
We hope that you enjoy this 23rd volume of The Review.
