Research Day

This will be the 8th year for the Research Day events where each College and many departments get involved and students from all over campus present their research. The “winners” from this day then have the opportunity to present at Big Night.  Interested students should contact the faculty coordinator for that particular school or college (please note that you do not have to major in the area that you wish to present, but you MUST have a faculty advisor who will sponsor you and your research).  Monetary awards will be given to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, place winners in each division. Details for each area competition are provided below.
