Fall Undergraduate Research Day 2015

IMG_3423On Thursday, September 24th the Undergraduate Research Program held its annual Fall Undergraduate Research Day Event. As with years past, the event featured poster presentations from student researchers from multiple programs, including the McNair Scholars Program, Undergraduate Research Grant program, and other independent programs.

The event kicked off with an introduction from the Undergraduate Research Program Director, Catherine Chan. The opening remarks were then given by newly appointed Chancellor Beverly Kopper. The poster presentations lasted from around 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.  Over 50 researchers presented at this year’s event, including around thirty presentations from various scientific fields, and twelve from the psychology department.

The event saw a good turnout this year: over 125 people came to the event, many of which showed genuine interest in the research and came to take a look at the hard work our student researchers have been putting forth, while others came to show support for their friends, family members, and fellow researchers.

Overall the event was a success. We received great feedback and multiple comments about the great variety of topics covered by the presenters. The Undergraduate Research Program would like to send a big thanks to everyone who helped make this event a success, including the speakers, presenters, and event staff.

Spring Undergraduate Research Day is currently set for March 16th, 2016 and will feature many more presentations, including multiple art and oral presentations, along with a multitude of posters. Come out and support the researchers this spring and help us to experience another successful Undergraduate Research Day!
