26th July | Pizza & Posters – 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. in Clemons Library, Georges Student Center
Students from all programs are invited to participate as presenters or attendees at this interdisciplinary research showcase. All presenters will share their work using academic research posters. If you are interested in participating, please submit your project information using this link no later than 11:59pm on Sunday, July 16.
- Posters should be 36" x 48" (H x W), and they should be ready to be displayed on bulletin boards (with push pins) at the event. They should not be free-standing. Students should work with their mentors to design their posters but may find these templates a helpful place to start.
