Discovery Day

Highlighting undergraduate student research and creative activity undertaken in the spring or summer months, Discovery Day is a time to view what students are researching both on and off campus and learn about research opportunities available for the new academic year.


This year’s event will be Thursday, August 25 from 11-4 pm in Hodges Library, 2nd floor common area.

We invite all students conducting research, interested in getting started, or those who are just curious to stop by the event!
