2019 Undergraduate Symposium: Friday, April 12  at Union South.

The annual Undergraduate Symposium showcases undergraduate creativity, achievement, research, service-learning and community-based research from all areas of study at UW–Madison including the humanities, fine arts, biological sciences, physical sciences, and social sciences.

Open to all undergraduates, the Symposium provides the opportunity for students to present their work in a professional setting. It also provides students with practical experience in public speaking and presentation skills. Additionally, it serves as a forum for other members of the campus and our community to engage in student research.
