All UROP students will present their work in the Spring Undergraduate Research Symposium, where they will showcase their contributions to their Research Sponsors’ projects. Part of the Colloquium will be to prepare you to present a poster at the symposium.
One of the most important parts of research is sharing your findings with the rest of the academic community. At the Fall Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities Awards (URCAA) Symposium, you’ll get to see what this looks like and how it fits into the academic culture at Florida State. In the Spring at the Undergraduate Research Symposium, you’ll be participating yourself. This rewards you with a conference presentation in your first or second year, a marker of your ability to not only conduct research but to communicate your results effectively; this is an opportunity that many students don’t have until their junior or senior year, if at all.
