CoAS Research Day

Tuesday, April 9, 2013

Come out and support your fellow dragons at the 13th Annual College of Arts and Sciences Research Day on Tuesday, April 9, 2013! CoAS Research Day highlights the significant contributions of student scholars and researchers at both the graduate and undergraduate level.

This year’s event includes a new oral presentation category featuring 20 undergraduate and graduate students from the humanities and social sciences, and the natural and physical sciences. Each participant will give a 15-minute presentation to a panel of judges in MacAlister Hall 2019/2020. Traditional poster presentations will be held simultaneously in Behrakis Grand Hall. Oral and poster presentations will be judged separately.

For the second year in a row, attendees will also hear from last year’s CoAS Research Day winners in a special round of research talks. Check out the full schedule below for exact times, locations and details.
