FSU Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium

The FSU Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium celebrates the diversity of undergraduate research and creative activities on campus. The Symposium provides students the opportunity to present their research in a professional setting and practical experience in public speaking and presentation skills. It is designed to acquaint undergraduates with the process and academic rigors of presenting research in a scholarly manner. It also serves as a forum for our community to engage in student research.

All FSU undergraduates are invited to submit an abstract and registration to participate in the Undergraduate Research Symposium. Research projects must have been conducted under the supervision of a faculty member or professional in the field. Students will present their research projects in either an oral or poster format. The oral presentation will allow students to give a 15-minute presentation of their topic and includes time for questions. Each oral session will be moderated by a faculty member. In the poster session, students will have designed a visual poster representing their research and will be presenting their work to individual participants over a one-hour session. Each student selected to be a presenter will be individually recognized for his/her contribution to university academic achievement. Papers may be considered for publication in STREAMS, the FSU undergraduate research journal.   The symposium will contain the following elements:

  • Keynote presentations
  • Oral Presentations
  • Poster Presentations
  • Performing Arts Demonstrations
  • Display of Creative Work
