Symposium to Showcase Student Research and Scholarly Achievements

Assumption College will showcase the scholarly work of more than 90 students from many disciplines, including the arts, business studies, humanities, natural sciences, and social sciences, on Monday, April 24 and Tuesday, April 25 during its 23rd Annual Undergraduate Symposium.

Each year the College sponsors the Undergraduate Symposium to highlight students’ research and scholarly achievements developed collaboratively with dedicated faculty mentors. These collaborations represent a model for integrating teaching, original research, and the beneficial effects of peer review in promoting intellectual development and professional growth.

The Symposium provides students a public forum in which to present their original research, replicating an academic conference.  At the event, the campus community gains a greater appreciation of the individual and collective accomplishments of students and faculty, and applauds those achievements.
