Student Symposium

The School of Arts & Sciences hosts an annual Student Symposium every April, which showcases hundreds of student research projects from across the disciplines. The event, held at the Modlin Center for the Arts, consists of oral presentations, poster sessions, performances and art exhibits and brings out the entire campus community. This year marks the 30th anniversary of this event. The 2015 Student Symposium will be April 17 from 1–6 p.m.

The Symposium gives students the opportunity to present their work in a professional setting, comparable to any international conference or discipline-specific symposium. Students apply for presentation slots that put the punctuation mark on their research experience. Most students present work that they've completed during the previous summer and academic year.
