NCWU Undergraduate Research Student Symposium
This student research symposium is held annually in the spring for students that complete any type of independent research project. Often as part of a class, student participants present independent scientific experimental research projects in a poster session, where they experience an atmosphere similar to that of a scientific conference. Judges circulate among the posters and presenters, and awards are provided to a select few. Additionally, sessions held earlier in the day feature research conducted by students enrolled in a sociology class, where they present their research in an oral presentation format similar to that which is utilized in conference sessions.
