LA GRANDE, Ore. May 8, 2017 – Eastern Oregon University students will showcase research and creative projects from throughout the year at the 2017 Spring Symposium this month. The annual event features undergraduates sharing their research with – and demonstrating their creative work for – EOU classmates, faculty, staff and the public.

Sharing the LearningActivities kick off in McKenzie Theatre in Loso Hall at 9:15 a.m. Wednesday, May 24. EOU President Tom Insko will provide a brief welcome message, followed by a student keynote speaker. Poster and speaking presentations will begin at 10:30 a.m. and finish by 2 p.m. Posters and presentations will take place throughout Loso Hall.

“The Spring Symposium is an outstanding opportunity for EOU students to present and discuss their academic and creative work of the past year in a professional environment,” said Symposium Chair Kyle Pfaffenbach. “The venue is open, welcoming, and a great chance for the presenting students to interact with faculty, community members, and most importantly, underclassmen that will soon follow in their footsteps.”
