LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – Students from across disciplines will display their original research and creations for the 2012 Spring Symposium at EOU Thursday, May 24.

The annual event begins at 9 a.m. and concludes with keynote speaker presentations from 2-3 p.m. Activities are open to the public and will take place in Loso and Badgley halls on the EOU campus.

Exhibitions are discipline-specific and will range from artistic displays, panel presentations, poster sessions, talks and performance art.

“The Spring Symposium is many students’ only opportunity to show off the amazing projects and performances they have been working on throughout their time at EOU,” said Amy Yielding, assistant professor of mathematics and co-chair of the event.

“The students presenting are among our best and brightest and many present original undergraduate research, which contributes to the richness of their discipline as well as to our community here in eastern Oregon. I hope everyone will join us in acknowledging the great talent and scholarship of these students,” Yielding added.

Topics this year cover the gamut and include a study of services for veterans in rural communities, a black hole simulation program, test screening of an original film and more.
