Research Symposium set for Dec. 2

Students from 23 Washington State University Freshman Seminars will present their research findings during the Freshman Seminar Research Symposium from noon to 5:00 p.m. on Dec. 2 in the Compton Union Building. Students will present fair-style in rooms 123-127 and formal presentations will take place in rooms 212-216.

The researchers worked with undergraduate and graduate students as well as teaching and library faculty to produce their multimedia projects.

In 2001, the Freshman Seminar Program was awarded the Commission for Academic Support in Higher Education Exemplary Programs Award as well as the American College Personal Association Excellent Student Program Award. The program was nominated for recognition by the John Templeton Foundation in 1999 for “educating to foster personal and civic responsibility.”

The symposium is free to the public. For more information, contact the Student Advising and Learning Center at WSU, 509-335-7212.
