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.
