Spring Undergraduate Research Symposium

Tuesday, April 25, 2023

The Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) is thrilled to announce the first in-person Spring Undergraduate Research Symposium since 2019!

The symposium will take place in the Frick Forum and Emerson Auditorium (Bauer Hall) throughout the day on TUESDAY, APRIL 25.

This event showcases the diverse range of research and experiential learning projects completed by WashU undergraduate students and mentored by WashU faculty. It provides an important opportunity for undergraduate students to share their research, engage in peer networking and cross-disciplinary conversations, and develop presentation skills. The Spring symposium also provides a chance to celebrate the culminating achievements of our graduating seniors! 

Whether you are already involved with undergraduate research, curious about getting started, or just want to cheer on the presenters, all are welcome to attend the symposium. We hope to see you there. 


We invite you to join us for this year's symposium featuring more than 250 undergraduate researchers from a wide-range of disciplines. This full-day hybrid event includes multiple in-person poster and oral presentation sessions in Frick Forum/Emerson Auditorium (Bauer Hall) and virtual presentations too.
