MSU's Summer Undergraduate Research Symposium 2015

July 30, 2015, 1:00 pm

Griffis Hall (3rd & 4th fl lobby, forum)

Join us for the Summer Undergraduate Research Symposium 2015 hosted by the Shackouls Honors College in collaboration with NSF-funded undergraduate research programs. The Symposium will be held in Griffis Hall (3rd floor lobby, 4th floor forum room) and will be an opportunity to showcase faculty-guided student research efforts from diverse departments, colleges and research centers across campus. Many undergraduates participate in faculty-guided research throughout the year. MSU is fortunate to have many faculty that involve undergraduates in research and several federally-funded research experiences for undergraduates programs. ALL undergraduates who are involved in faculty-guided research this academic year are invited and encouraged to participate in this symposium through poster presentation, short talk, or performance. There will be an awards ceremony after the poster and talk sessions in the forum room. Refreshments will be provided.

Talks and posters need to be classified by the student as belonging to one of four categories:

  1. Arts and Humanities
  2. Biological Sciences and Engineering
  3. Physical Sciences and Engineering
  4. Social Sciences

It will be up to the student and his or her faculty mentor to properly classify the project.

Please note that mentors are not to intervene while a student is being questioned by a judge.

Guidelines for posters are found below. Note that if a poster session is given, students must provide their own board for poster display! The talks and performances will be given ten minutes for presentation and five minutes for questions.

Please visit the FAQ page for more information.

There is no fee to participate.

If you do not receive a confirmation e-mail, you are not registered.

Entry deadline is July 10, 2015.
