posted by Mitchell Gale on Feb. 22, 2023, 1:09 a.m.

Hi All,

A reminder to consider signing up to this exciting opportunity for those doing research right now. It's a great chance to show off all your hard work to interested students and faculty.

You and your project can help inspire other students to consider jumping into research.

Plus you can have a poster printed for free!

"The School will pay for the printing of all student posters received."

and you can win some of the prizes.

If you are like me and unfortunately not currently perusing research, we can still check out the posters and learn about the cool work out peers are doing. The Undergraduate Research Symposium takes place Monday, April 3, 2023 from 12:30 - 3:30 PM at the Applied Sciences Building(ASB) Atrium. I hope to see you there.
