Once again, CSON students took Undergraduate Research Day by storm. 11 students participated presenting a total of six posters and one oral presentation. Undergraduate Research Fellows worked with faculty mentors to create their poster. Each student, with guidance, had to research, design, and present their poster or presentation in front of a group of their peers and faculty from throughout the University.

The Undergraduate Research Symposium is a yearly event put on the by the Provost's Office. Undergraduate students from Boston College are invited to participate in the event. If chosen, this venue allows students to share the research they have worked on with faculty, or conclusions they were able to draw from their work on advanced study grants. The day is filled with poster presentations and panels.
