ROCK HILL, SOUTH CAROLINA -- Is a woman's Achilles tendon more durable and flexible than a man's, hence less prone to injury? How does parental behavior affect a child's attitude toward goal achievement? Are there traces of romance in Antonio and Bassanio's friendship in Shakespeare's "The Merchant of Venice?"

For the answers to the questions above, consider attending the Second Annual Showcase of Undergraduate Research and Creative Endeavors (SOURCE) on Friday, April 22, at Winthrop University.

Recognizing that undergraduate research is one of the "High-Impact Practices" identified by the American Association of Colleges and Universities-which refers to a practice that contributes to student engagement and persistence-Winthrop has worked particularly hard in recent years to offer opportunities to students in all majors to participate in the creation of projects reflecting their original work. Hosted by University College and the Office of Undergraduate Research with the guidance and organizing expertise of Director Robin Lammi, SOURCE includes work from all five academic colleges on campus.

This year's SOURCE showcase features project from more than 23 departments-including the sciences, mass communication, mathematics, history, political science, social work, psychology and more, said Gloria Jones, dean of University College. SOURCE will feature nearly 120 presentations, plus more than 40 works that are currently on display at the 28th Annual Undergraduate Juried Exhibition.
