Plan to attend the Fourteenth Annual Celebration of
Undergraduate Research at UNC-Chapel on Monday, April 15, 2013,
pm at the Frank Porter Graham Student Union. Be sure to pick up a Research Bingo
card and fill it out by talking with the poster presenters and listening to platform talks. You might win the grand prize including $100 and many generous
donations from our sponsors! The card also has a place for you to nominate a poster for display in the Undergraduate Library next
The Celebration is an annual event that is sponsored by the Office for Undergraduate Research and co-sponsored by The Roosevelt Institute. The goal of the Celebration is to showcase and encourage meaningful research in all disciplines by undergraduates at the UNC-Chapel Hill.
Are you curious about opportunities to engage in original inquiry and research at Carolina? Not sure where to begin? Come to the
Great Hall in the FPG Student Union and look for students wearing "HOST" nametags. They will help you to identify projects that match
During the symposium, you will have the opportunity to meet and talk with potential faculty advisors and learn what students like you have accomplished.
For symposium details including advice on preparing abstracts, poster design and size, and presenter responsibilities, please visit the Frequently Asked Questions page.
Visit the Courses & Workshops page for details of this year's pre-symposium workshop, where you can practice your poster presentation, receive tips for your talk, and learn to ask and answer questions about research.
There will be concurrent talks (“platform sessions”) and poster sessions. The Platform Schedule lists the order of the 15-minute presentations (sessions begin at 1:00). The Poster Schedule includes each poster number (students will be present at their posters from 1-2:00 for odd-numbered posters and from 2:15-3:15 for even-numbered posters). The schedules also include links to the abstracts.
Carolina Research Scholars recognition and Poster Awards
At 3:30 pm, everyone is invited to Room 3408 in the Student Union to honor the 2012-2013 Carolina Research Scholars. Recipients of the symposium Poster Awards and the Research Bingo grand prize winner will be announced at a later date. The winning posters will be displayed in the Undergraduate Library until graduation, and then featured in the 2nd floor display case throughout 2013-2014.
