Spring Student Symposium
We invite all members of the Middlebury College community, guests, and members of the public to join us in celebrating the academic and creative endeavors of Middlebury students. The symposium on Friday, April 21 will feature oral and poster presentations and displays throughout the day in McCardell Bicentennial Hall. Student presenters come from all four classes at Middlebury and all fields of academic study.
A full schedule of activities can be found online at go.middlebury.edu/sym
Information specifically for faculty and staff can also be found there, including a presenters list that can be sorted by major or department.
Faculty and Staff: Please encourage your students to apply. Encouragement from a faculty or staff member is the largest reason students chose to participate in the Spring Student Symposium! Students from all four years and all departments and programs are invited to apply.
The application deadline is Thursday, March 2, 2017. For more information and the online application, see the Undergraduate Research website at http://go.middlebury.edu/sym.
Research in a class, independently, or through an internship; the experience of producing a creative work; or another academic project that lends itself to a display, a poster or oral presentation, are all eligible for the symposium. Both individual and class presentations are welcome. Student’s applications must include a project description (200 words) that has been approved by a faculty or staff sponsor. Final abstract revisions are due 3/20.
The 2017 Spring Student Symposium will take place all day Friday, April 21 in McCardell Bicentennial Hall with presentations of student work across the disciplines.
Join us for our 11th year of celebrating the academic and creative endeavors of Middlebury students!
The Spring Student Symposium Planning Committee
“The Student Symposium was one of my favorite days of the year. Presenting my work was very rewarding, but the day was great because of the quality of everyone’s work and presentation. Students at Middlebury work hard, and the Symposium is an amazing way to celebrate achievements and also gain essential presentation skills.”– Symposium Participant
