View the 2018 Undergraduate Symposium Program 

Join us for Northern Arizona University's 10th annual Undergraduate Symposium - a campus wide celebration of student achievement. More than 1,000 students from across all colleges will come together to share their creative discoveries and present in-depth research and scholarly work to their peers, professors, and the University and Flagstaff communities. 

More than 500 posters and 240 presentations and exhibits showcase the diversity of the students' experiences - from creative endeavors like painting exhibitions or creative writing blogs, to more traditional research activities.

The Symposium will also spotlight student participation in service learning and collaborative projects, an invaluable learning experience that connects communities and applies passion to a purpose.

Events are free and open to the public, unless noted. 

Thank you to our 2018 Undergraduate Symposium sponsors:
