2018 MAGS Thesis Nominees Announced
November 13, 2017
The GVSU Midwest Association of Graduate Schools (MAGS) Thesis Review Committee has recently selected Sarah VanOeveren and Geoffrey Kishbaugh as nominees for the MAGS Distinguished Thesis Competition. Sarah VanOeveren’s thesis, "Anillin-like Mid1 cooperates with alpha-actinin for the cortical confinement of actin filaments during ring assembly in Schizosaccharomyces pombe" was selected as the nominee for the Biological and Life Sciences category. Geoffrey Kishbaugh’s thesis, "Becoming Self: A Jungian Approach to Paradise Lost" as the nominee for the Humanities category. The review committee deemed both of these theses to be the strongest representation of GVSU's graduate student thesis work from the past year. The Graduate School will submit a copy of both of their theses for consideration by a committee from MAGS and a winner will be announced in early 2018. Congratulations to both Kishbaugh and VanOeveren!
