 Seven Rivers Undergraduate Research Symposium
 Viterbo University
 La Crosse, WI  


Friday, November 8, 2013 marked the 11th annual Seven Rivers Undergraduate Research Symposium.  This year's showcase of undergraduate student research and creative work was a wonderful opportunity to see student scholarship from across the disciplines. There were 120 student research presentations (poster and oral presentations) involving roughly 185 students from 13 area colleges and universities. Thanks to all who attended for making this year's event a success!

Please check back in January 2014 for details regarding next year's event.
