Undergrad Research Colloquium

About the Undergraduate Research Colloquium

Held at the end of each spring semester, Ohio State Marion's Undergraduate Research Colloquium showcases student research to the campus and local community. Undergraduate students from any discipline and all academic levels are invited to present their research and creative projects. The colloquium provides a forum for students, faculty, and the community to discuss cutting edge research conducted here at Ohio State Marion.

Research projects may originate from one of two categories

  1. Research conducted in an undergraduate class (e.g., class project, creative assignment, research paper, etc.) 
  2. Formal research conducted with the mentorship of a faculty member (e.g., senior honors thesis, non-honors senior thesis, independent research project, etc.)

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 will be structured as a poster session where students discuss their projects and answer questions about the research. During the session there will be a lunch served for student researchers and their faculty mentors. Research can be presented in a variety of formats it does not need to be a poster. Please contact me about any questions.
