The Undergraduate Research and Scholarship Symposium celebrates the many contributions made by Tufts undergraduates to scholarship and research advances. It includes presentations by undergraduates from all disciplines: natural sciences, social sciences, engineering, humanities, and the arts.
This year's symposium will be held on Thursday, May 4 from 11 AM to 8 PM.
The symposium provides a great forum to meet other undergraduate researchers and exchange interdisciplinary ideas. Additionally, it is an opportunity to present research before Tufts faculty members and student peers. Thesis writers take note--the symposium is a great way to fine-tune your presentation skills.
Participants have the option of presenting 15-minute oral presentations or creating a 36" x 48" poster for an interdisciplinary poster session.
