Student Opportunity to Participate in the 21st Annual Undergraduate Symposium

Opportunity for Your Students: 21st Annual Undergraduate Symposium

Please encourage undergraduate students in your classes, or working under your direction or mentorship–who are engaged in research, service learning, fine art and performance–to take advantage of UW-Madison’s Undergraduate Symposium to present their work to the campus community and public-at-large. I hope you will also consider encouraging students in your classes to attend the Symposium even if they are not presenting. The Undergraduate Symposium is open to all UW-Madison students enrolled during the 2018-2019 academic year, including those who graduated in December.

This year’s Undergraduate Symposium will be held Friday, on April 12, 2019, in Union South and is designed to showcase undergraduate students’ creativity, achievement and talent across all disciplines. The schedule includes a film shorts session, a Lighting-style talk session, a performance workshop where students can perform and discuss their creative process, and the Friends and Family reception following the event. The event is free and open to the public.
