Undergraduate students from the University of Nevada, Reno, the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and Sierra Nevada College today showcased their research at the Nevada Undergraduate Research Symposium held in the Joe Crowley Student Union.
The symposium gave students a platform to highlight the large breath of research conducted by undergraduates in the Nevada System of Higher Education. It was the largest symposium to date.

Torri is back in Reno in pursuit of what sets her soul on fire: documenting social issues and following stories wherever she goes. After her last freelance story with ThisIsReno in 2014, Torri has spent the past four years as a bilingual advocate for victims of domestic abuse, sexual assault, and other traumatic crimes in diverse cities from San Diego to the rural deep South where she earned her master’s degree in social work. There, she developed a successful non-profit food pantry on campus, established, and created a disaster relief initiative for the School of Social Work and even volunteered to support refugees in Iraqi Kurdistan over a winter holiday break.
