Cleft Lip And Palate: An Educational Guide For Families, Ciara Woods

Senior Honors Theses & Projects

Cleft lip and palate are craniofacial anomalies affecting more than 200,000 infants in teh United States per year.

The Digital Self: A Qualitative Approach To Studying Female College Students' Use Of Social-Networking Platforms, Megan Christine Gore

Master's Theses and Doctoral Dissertations

With the continuously changing social-networking platforms, there is little research that sheds light on social-networking use among female college students. My goal was to conduct a qualitative research study that examined female ...
