ECA
Five undergraduate students from the Mount presented their research at the 2017 Eastern Communication Association (ECA) Conference held in Boston from Wednesday, March 29 to Sunday, April 2.
Students were from the Media & the Catholic Church class of Brian Gilchrist, Ph.D., assistant professor from the department of communication.
 
These students had their research papers accepted by the Undergraduate Scholars Conference at ECA. What's even more impressive is that out of 165 undergraduates that submitted papers, the acceptance rate was less than 30 percent. Gilchrist noted that other conference attendees were very impressed by Mount students.
