PFP Hospitality Suite at Undergraduate Research Symposium

2014SympPosterParent and Family Programs is hosting the hospitality suite at the 17th Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium on Friday, May 16 — and you’re invited! The Undergraduate Research Symposium, taking place in Mary Gates Hall on the UW Seattle campus, is a chance for undergraduates to share their research experiences with a larger audience. The impact of this experience is life-changing. One student participant in last year’s symposium said, “Undergraduate research has changed how I approach many life situations and taught me that the best way to deal is to plan ahead, don’t fret, and always, always persevere if it doesn’t work out the first time.” The symposium also provides a forum for students, faculty, and the community to discuss cutting-edge research topics and to examine the connection between research and education. The symposium includes poster and presentation sessions by students from all academic disciplines and all three UW campuses, as well as invited guests. All UW undergraduates involved in research are encouraged to apply, and those not yet involved in research will discover that attending the symposium is a great way to learn about the broad range of opportunities available at the UW. In 2013, over 1,000 undergraduates participated in the symposium, with more than 3,500 people in attendance. Questions about the symposium? Please visit the Frequently Asked Questions page. Parent and Family Programs Hospitality Suite: Take a break from the symposium and join us in the suite for light refreshments and conversation. Senior Vice Provost for Academic and Student Affairs, Jerry Baldasty, and Vice Provost and Dean of Undergraduate Academic Affairs, Ed Taylor, will be stopping by for a “meet-and-greet” from 12-12:30 p.m. We look forward to connecting with you at this great event!
