CARROLTON, GA — Brant Entrekin, a student of the University of West Georgia, won the Best Paper throughout the UWG-hosted Georgia Undergraduate Research Conference.

GURC is a regional and multidisciplinary conference open to undergraduates both in and out of Georgia. This conference encourages the dissemination of original student scholarship conducted in collaboration with a faculty or staff mentor. It serves as a networking conference giving undergraduates connections to a career as well as graduate school opportunities.

“Receiving this award shows the quality of the professors and the support staff at UWG. It shows that my professors really have prepared me well to succeed in the area I want to work in — academic writing — and that they truly provide the resources by being supportive at every level — from research, to drafting, to revising, to the very process of finding and submitting papers to conferences,” said Entrekin.

The faculty awarded Entrekin as one of the most notable students of UWG’s philosophy program and a principal example of a student researcher.

Professor of philosophy, Dr. Robert Lane, said that it was impressive that Entrekin presented two papers at the conference, where his second paper won the Best Paper Award.

In addition, Entrekin praised the diversity in the university’s philosophy program as another reason for the accomplishments he achieved as a student and researcher.

He plans this December to graduate from the university with his Bachelor’s degree in Philosophy. He aspires to continue his education in Ph.D. in philosophy of law, political philosophy and religion after graduation
