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.

Symposium oral presentation, performance, exhibit, and roundtable schedule 

Roundtables are 25-minute discussions with attendees seated around a table or in a small group. These presentations typically include a short presentation (about 5 minutes) by the facilitator (presenter), followed by discussion and feedback. Roundtable presenters should bring targeted questions to pose to others at the table in order to learn from and with those attending. Roundtables are an ideal format for networking and in-depth discussion on a particular topic.

Oral presentations and roundtables will be scheduled 9:00am - 11:45am and 1:15pm - 4:00pm. Times and lengths of oral presentations are determined by schedules for specific rooms or stages.
