Her first year chairing the Student Scholar Days committee, Cindy Whitney, assistant professor of sociology, said "We have a great selection of very well thought out topics." The event allows students a chance to connect with a mentor and can be added to a resume when applying to graduate school. "It is another example of Adams State faculty mentoring students one-on-one."

The Student Scholar Days committee includes Dr. Leslie Alvarez, associate professor of psychology; Dr. Brent King, associate professor of psychology; Dr. Rob Benson, associate professor of earth science; Linda Pacheco-Demski, teacher education graduate coordinator; Dr. Sheryl Ludwig, assistant professor of teacher education; and Kristi Duran, assistant professor of biology.
