Senior Presents at National Conference

Rogers State University student Brandon Sutton presented his philosophy research during the recent National Conference on Undergraduate Research, which attracted more than 4,000 students and mentors from around the world.

Sutton, a liberal arts senior from Chelsea, presented “Society’s Paradoxes: Looking at Socio-Political Issues by Studying Paradoxes” during the four-day conference held in early April at the University of Central Oklahoma. Conference participants represented 435 universities across all 50 U.S. states, Washington, D.C. and 13 other countries.

During the conference, undergraduate students delivered oral presentations about their original research and discussed details with audience members who attended presentation sessions.   

Sutton’s original research examined ancient philosophical paradoxes and explored how they related to issues at the societal and personal levels. He was joined at the conference by faculty mentor Dr. Matthew Oberrieder, Assistant Professor in the Department of English and Humanities at RSU.
