Armstrong's 22nd Annual Student Scholars Symposium
Armstrong has a proud tradition of student involvement in various scholarly and creative endeavors. Whether it’s turning a ceramic vase or synthesizing chemical compounds, students are working side by side with faculty making valuable contributions to their fields of expertise. The Symposium provides a venue for the campus and the community to come together to celebrate these accomplishments and to recognize the outstanding scholarly achievements made by our students. The 22nd Annual Student Scholars Symposium will be held on April 20-21, 2016. The 2015 Symposium was a tremendous success. Over 300 individual students from all four colleges made 200 oral and poster presentations.
Reflecting on their experience, previous presenters say:
“The experience of being able to present our intro to research project was AMAZING. It definitely helped to show my professors from the Psychology department that I am competent and knowledgeable about conducting and presenting research. This led to the pursuit of an undergraduate research grant and also a student job in the animal lab. It gave me the confidence and skills to be able to later pursue new conferences to present my work in addition to presenting this semester at our annual symposium. It made me a more confident and productive student of psychology.”

“My experience focused my goal of teaching at a university by giving me an opportunity to present my research to my peers and professors. The experience was a lot of fun and I believe the ability to speak professionally will help with obtaining a job. The ability to condense a large research project into an articulated presentation is extremely valuable in any field, and these are the skills I honed at the symposium.”
