Fall Research Day Is Wednesday 11/8/17

More than 75 scholarly and creative presentations that span a wide array of disciplines make up the University’s Fall Research Day on Wednesday, Nov. 8. All events will take place in Sykes Student Union, are free and open to the public.

Students and faculty will display their research in a poster session set up in Sykes Ballrooms from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. From 1 to 2:30 p.m., three of Sykes’ second-floor meeting rooms will be buzzing with activity as a succession of scholars makes oral presentations. Awards will be presented from 2:30 to 3 p.m.

Why should undergraduates pursue research with faculty mentors? Many of these students and their predecessors at previous years’ Research Days will tell you: to access experts and resources many undergrads can’t access; to learn one-on-one about a subject that fascinates both parties; to improve chances of getting a good job or getting into grad programs; and ultimately, for their own personal and professional success. These experiences underscore how learning is enriched through scholarship.
