Information for Presenters

What is the Spring Symposium?

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

Should I Present at the Spring Symposium?

If you are a Junior or Senior at EOU and have conducted work that you would like to present publicly, then YES! Students can apply to present their Capstone project, or another suitable course project, by submitting an abstract below. Projects can be presented in a number of formats, including art exhibits, performances, research talks, and poster presentations. We can encourage students across all academic programs to present their work!

I am an online student. Can I still participate in the Spring Symposium?

YES! If travel to La Grande is possible, then online students are welcome to attend and present at Symposium. If students cannot attend, We are willing to be creative in order to create the space and provide a platform for online students to present their work! The bottom line is that if you have significant work that you would like to present to the EOU community please work with your adviser and let us know what you need to make that presentation happen.

Why should students participate in the Spring Symposium?

  • This is an outstanding opportunity to share your academic research and creative accomplishments in a professional setting.
  • Share your excitement about a topic with students, faculty, the EOU Board of Trustees, EOU Administrators, and the community.
  • Gain valuable professional experience to add your resume, as you prepare for future jobs, graduate schools, or internships.

Should I attend the Spring Symposium?

YES! YES! YES! ALL students, faculty, staff, and the public are invited to attend and take part in celebrating the work of EOU students. So come and learn, spread the word, support your classmates, and be inspired!!
