Inaugural Undergraduate Research Colloquium
Ohio State Marion's Inaugural Undergraduate Research Colloquium was held Friday, April 17th, 2015 , from 11 a.m.-12 p.m., in the Guthery Community Room, Maynard Hall. Held in the Spring semester, the Ohio State Marion Undergraduate Research Colloquium showcases student research to the Marion community. Undergraduate students from any discipline and all academic levels are eligible to present their research and creative projects and are eligible to win up to $500 in scholarship funding. The colloquium provides a forum for students, faculty, and the community to discuss cutting edge research topics and to examine the connection between research and education. Research projects may originate from undergraduate coursework or through formal research mentoring by a faculty member. All Ohio State Marion undergraduates involved in research are encouraged to participate and those not yet involved in research will discover that attending the colloquium is a great way to learn about the broad range of opportunities available at a research institution such as The Ohio State University. The colloquium is structured with two 1-hour poster sessions, where students discuss their projects and answer questions about the research. A researcher’s lunch and award ceremony will follow the morning colloquium.
