Faculty: Finalizing your syllabi for the semester? Think about incorporating the Seven Rivers Undergraduate Research Symposium into your plans. Scheduled for Friday, Nov. 14, this no-fee,regional conference is open to undergraduate researchers in all disciplines. Consider assigning your students to attend poster or oral presentations sessions and write reflections based on the content or structure of the presentations. Alternatively, if students will be conducting substantive research as part of your class or as an independent study, consider having them present their work at the Symposium. Questions? Contact Kirsten Gabriel at More information about Seven Rivers can be found online at
