At the end of every semester, undergraduate researchers are invited to participate in a poster session, sponsored by the Department of Chemistry. Participation in the symposium is open to all undergraduates performing research with the Department of Chemistry, regardless of major or academic year. This provides an opportunity for undergraduates to not only receive more direct and practical feedback on their research, but also to help develop presentation and public speaking skills.
While the symposium is held at the end of both fall and spring semesters, the spring poster session offers prizes for best poster, as judged by the Department of Chemistry Advisory Council.
