The School of Science & Technology and the WATERS Collaborative are co-hosting the 3rd Annual SSU Science Symposium on May 7, 2015 at the SSU Student Center. The symposium features talks by students in the Science Freshmen Year Experience, and showcases the scholarship and achievements of students in the School of Science & Technology and students undertaking watershed research as part of the WATERS Collaborative. The Symposium includes refreshments and is open to ALL SSU students, faculty, staff, and members of the public.

Last year, we had 67 posters from across campus. In total, 12 departments were represented. Award-winning posters came from Biology, Geography, and Physics & Astronomy. Participating in the Symposium is a great way for students to become actively involved in the science community. We encourage faculty to recruit students to present at the Symposium or to consider incorporating attendance into their class assignments.
