Four FSU undergraduate students: present research posters at Florida State Capitol

Florida State University undergraduate research students had the chance to share their research posters at the Florida State Capitol on Jan. 23 during the Florida Undergraduate Research Association’s (FURA) Posters at the Capitol 2024 event.

“We loved having the opportunity to show our legislators and others who work at the Capitol that Florida State University undergraduate students are engaged in groundbreaking research and innovation that is making an impact in the state and beyond,” said Latika Young, director of FSU’s 

Co-hosted by CRE and FURA, this was the third time for the biannual event. Each FURA institutional member could invite up to four students to present posters, connect with Florida representatives and learn more about the political process and how to advocate for undergraduate research at the local and state governmental level.

Campbell’s Honors in the Major thesis research argues that zombified suburban communities are an understudied and obscure byproduct of overdevelopment and poor planning in Florida. Residents and landowners deal with stagnant property values, safety concerns and the reality that the suburban dream they bought into is unrealized and unlikely to come to fruition. This research intervenes in this knowledge gap — providing community-grounded, geographical theory on zombie communities, their implications on residents and landowners and how their phenomena fit within suburbanization in Florida.
