Research Day & Big Night


Research Day  |  Past Winners

Big Night is celebrating its 17th year highlighting undergraduate research in the fields of business, education, nursing, fine arts, humanities, sciences, and social sciences. Students work with faculty advisors on research projects for several months or longer and the winners are selected through Area Competitions at Research Day by panels of expert judges.

Big Night 2015 is Tuesday, April 14, 2015, at 7:00 pm in the Campus Center Ballroom.

Immediately following the 6 student presentations there will be an awards ceremony, reception, and poster display. All student posters submitted for Big Night will be displayed in the Library through the end of the Spring semester.

We will have a judged Research Poster Competition, with first, second, third, and fourth place monetary awards given per poster. In order to be considered for a monetary award, the student researcher must be present to represent his/her poster during the judging that will take place from 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm on the day of the Big Night. The winners of the poster competition will be announced during the Big Night awards ceremony.

Students should complete a Big Night Poster Competition form if they would like to participate in the poster competition by displaying undergraduate research or creative projects in a visual format. The deadline to register for the poster competition is Thursday, April 9.

Only students who submit the form will be allowed to participate in the Big Night Poster session and therefore will also be the only participants eligible to receive the monetary awards. Students must have a faculty sponsor/mentor to enter into the poster competition.
