The abstract submission period is now closed.  Thank you to everyone who has submitted!  We look forward to hearing/seeing your work on May 18th.


Symposium Overview

The Spring Symposium is an opportunity for undergraduate students at Eastern Oregon to showcase and present their creative activities and accomplished studies to fellow students, faculty and the public.

Students will present on a variety of topics spanning the breadth of scholarly work undertaken on our campus.  The presentations are discipline-specific and range from artistic displays, panel presentations, poster sessions, talks, exhibits, and performance art.

It is an excellent “presenting” opportunity for students, and a celebration of undergraduate achievement in research and creative activities.


Information for Student Presenters

All students that wish to present at the Spring Symposium must complete the online application.  An abstract (1400 character limit) describing the research effort must be included as part of the application.  Please work with your faculty adviser when preparing the abstract.  We will be providing information sessions on preparing a talk and for creating a poster.  Dates will be announced for early spring term help sessions.
