USTF Student Freddy Lopez Presents his Research at the NASPA Conference and Symposium

Attending NASPA’s Region II and Region III Conference & Symposium allowed me to see research on a professional setting for the first time. As someone who is interested in academia, I was able to get a first-look into how a career in academia would look like outside of the classroom. This was also my first-time presenting research outside of Mason and it was quite a thrilling experience as I was able to network with professionals. I was actually able to see how research could be used to inform others on certain issues and to offer possible solutions with the research that you create. I thank OSCAR and my mentor for allowing me the chance to attend.
