The Honors Program encourages its students to participate in academic conferences
that provide opportunities to distinguish oneself as a scholar. The conferences listed
here provide a forum in which Honors students can present research results, participate
in panel discussions, display poster presentations, and show or perform original work.
Depending on the conference, these presentations may be individual, in pairs, or small
groups. The distinction of having presented at one or more conferences speaks well
for students who are competing for admission to highly selective transfer schools,
programs of study, and for competitive scholarships. For more information on why and
how to present your research, check out the video "Got Research?" by Misty Kolchakian, Honors Faculty Coordinator and Research Advisor.
*Please check conference and publication websites for submission deadlines, conference
dates/locations, and further information.
