Ph.D. students receive awards at CSU’s Graduate Student Showcase

Rebecca Lassell and Kelley Covington

Colorado State University’s Graduate Student Showcase, held on the university’s campus each year, provides a great opportunity for students to present their research posters and be recognized for their excellence in research. Four Ph.D. students from the Department of Occupational Therapy participated in this year’s showcase by presenting their research posters to judges from various departments across the campus and the CSU community. Winners were announced at the end of the day and the Department of Occupational Therapy was pleased to congratulate Kelley Covington and Rebecca Lassell for receiving awards for their outstanding work.

When asked about her experience Lassell said, “The Graduate Student Showcase is a wonderful opportunity to present your own research, but also to network with other graduate students. It was fun to learn about the fascinating research projects occurring in other departments across campus—I highly recommend the experience!”
