Join the Office of Undergraduate Research on Wednesday, August 9th in the Student Union as we highlight undergraduate student summer research, scholarly activities, and performance/visual arts at our Summer Undergraduate Research Symposium. This event provides a casual setting where undergraduate researchers will meet their research cohort and share their summer work with the campus, and offers an opportunity for students to develop their professional presentation skills by presenting a three minute “quick pitch” of their research. Projects in all academic fields and at all stages of the research process are welcome!

Date: Wednesday, August 9, 2017
Time: 12:00 – 3:30 pm
Location: Student Union, Room 208
