Sixth Annual Undergraduate Symposium is Friday, May 20, 2016!
The Sixth Annual Undergraduate Symposium will host undergraduates engaged in original research, creative work, and community-based projects from across the disciplines and colleges in the Global Scholars Hall for a day of oral and poster presentations, creative work installations, and artistic performances.
By participating you will have the opportunity to display your work to faculty and students and have an experience similar to participating in a research conference! People are friendly and want to hear about your research. It's fun too!

Fifth Annual Undergraduate Symposium
The Fifth Annual Undergraduate Symposium was honored to welcome the largest and most disciplinary diverse cohort of undergraduates to date—encompassing nearly 200 presenters representing 46 majors and seven colleges.
The 2015 Undergraduate Symposium Faculty Review Committee accepted 129 proposals after a rigorous abstract review process. Presenters—individually and in teams—shared their ideas, discoveries, research, and artistic expressions with the campus and local community through 64 poster exhibits, 56 oral presentations, and nine creative work installations and performances. New categories for service learning and international research were spotlighted as well.
The Undergraduate Symposium also wishes to acknowledge the 143 faculty mentors who sponsored the presenters' proposals.
