LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – Students are preparing to share what they’ve been up to throughout the academic year during the Spring Symposium at EOU Wednesday, May 21.

The annual event is an opportunity for undergraduates and graduates alike to share their original research and creative projects with peers, faculty, staff and the public.

Walk through Pierce Library, Badgley, Loso and Zabel halls to experience performances, participate in panel discussions, and listen to poster presentations and talks.

“Spring Symposium exhibits the most vital aspects of higher education,” said Colby Heideman, assistant professor of chemistry and symposium chair. “Students explore new problems, examine modern issues, create original works and then communicate their experiences with their community.”

Activities begin at 9 a.m. and wrap up by 2:30 p.m. For more information and access to a complete schedule visit www.eou.edu/sprsymp.
