The School of Arts & Sciences hosts the Student Symposium each April, which showcases over 200 student research projects from nearly 30 disciplines in the arts, humanities, sciences, and social sciences.
The event offers student researchers the opportunity to share their scholarly work with the campus community and the public in the form of oral presentations, poster sessions, performances, and art exhibits.
The Symposium gives students the opportunity to present their work in a professional setting, comparable to any international conference or discipline-specific symposium. It also helps them gain experience speaking publicly and translating their knowledge to a broad audience. Students apply for presentation slots that put the punctuation mark on their research experience.
The 2017 Student Symposium will be held on Friday, April 21 from 1–6 p.m. at the Modlin Center for the Arts and the Gottwald Center for the Sciences. The event is free and all are welcome.
