Throughout the world of higher education, the end of the semester is a time of intense and usually private study and reflection on the year. At Samford, it also is a time for students to publicly share the results of their original research projects. The primary forum for that sharing, the Samford University Showcase for Undergraduate Research 2004, will take place on Friday, May 7.

Approximately 130 students will present the results of their research on topics representing most areas of Samford’s undergraduate curriculum. The presentations will be made in concurrent sessions from 8 a.m.-3 p.m. in Samford’s Sciencenter, rooms 109, 311 and 315. Honor thesis defense sessions will be held in room 204 from 8 a.m.-3:50 p.m. Posters will be displayed in room 120 from 11 a.m.-1:45 p.m. Follow the link below to get a complete showcase schedule.
