SURF Seminar Day

Saturday, October 16, 2021

Welcome to SFP/SURF Fall Seminar Day! Seminar Day is an opportunity for our undergraduate scholars to present their summer research projects and findings. This year we are holding Seminar Day virtually via the Symposium platform. Here is what to expect:

  • Spend some time during the day viewing poster and oral presentations on the Symposium website. You will be able to search by discipline, student name, and SFP program. Feel free to make comments and ask questions in the text-chat feature.
  • In the afternoon (see schedule below), student presenters will be online ready and waiting to answer your questions via the text-chat feature and dialogue with you about their work.
  • The day will be book-ended by an opening session and closing session. We hope you will join us for these two "live" events.
