15th Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium

posterThe 15th Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium was held on Friday, October 19, 2012, to coincide with events of Parents Weekend. It was our largest event ever, with approximately 220 students presenting posters. We estimate that it was attended by 600 people, including faculty, undergraduate and graduate students, parents and relatives. Some photos from the event are shown below.
