CHENEY, Wash. - More than 480 students from Eastern Washington University's four colleges will present their scholarly abstracts and creative works at the 15th annual Student Research and Creative Works Symposium, May 15-16, on the Cheney campus.
The Symposium is the largest, campuswide academic event at EWU and showcases projects completed by undergraduate and graduate students after months of preparation with nearly 130 faculty mentors.
This type of forum gives participants the valuable opportunity to present their research or creative work - via oral/poster presentation, interactive exhibit or artistic display - in a formal, professional setting. It also gives students an excellent chance to interact, and it prepares them for graduate school and fine tunes their workforce skills.
