Spring is a great time to learn about our students’ research projects.

Members of the CALS community are invited to the CALS Undergraduate Research Symposium on Tuesday, April 18 from 9:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. The event, put on by the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences Health and Research Society (CHARS), will take place in the 1st floor atrium and Ebling Symposium Center in the Microbial Sciences Building.

The symposium provides students with the opportunity to share the results of their independent research projects. Students will communicate their research findings either through a poster or through a brief slideshow presentation. Refreshments will be provided.
