REMINDER: Undergraduate Research Symposium Deadline & Abstract Writing Workshops

To present their work in the Symposium, students must submit an application by Monday, February 13th. In order to help students prepare for the application process, we have scheduled Abstract Writing Workshops, an Abstract Open House, and URP drop-in hours this week.
