The Undergraduate Student Symposium showcases the outstanding scholarship of NSU undergraduate students through their poster displays, oral presentations, performances, and paper submissions. It’s an annual event that is sponsored by the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences.
The projects cover areas ranging from the experimental, the applied, and the computational, to the theoretical, artistic, and literary. They can stem from class assignments and independent projects. The definition of scholarship includes work presented in the biological and physical sciences, the social and behavioral sciences, computer science, mathematics, humanities, nursing, education, and business. Submissions can include journalism, literary analysis, philosophical and historical analysis, original films, and public speaking (informative or persuasive). The research does not have to be complete; presentations can represent any stage of a project’s evolution, from proposal and literature review to fully completed experiments.
