The origin of the name "Perpetua"

"Perpetua" Latin for unceasing. We chose this name to represent the unceasing pursuit of knowledge at the heart of academia. The aim of this journal is to make sure that this interminable endeavor, taken on by the undergraduate students engaged in research and creative projects at UAH, is made accessible to everyone. In addition, our staff brings the same unceasing drive to our mission of publishing a quality research journal.
