  2. 2. WHAT IS THE UNDERGRADUATE STUDENT CONFERENCE?  A chance for undergraduate students from ALL disciplines and programs to share their work...research, artwork, innovative projects, papers, exhibitions, etc.  Conference takes place March 28-29th, 2014
  3. 3. WHAT DOES IT INVOLVE?  Poster session and lectures  If giving a lecture, 3 students will each present for 15 minutes, and then all 3 will take audience questions for another 15 minutes
  4. 4. NERVOUS?  This is a supportive environment  The conference committee will be offering a variety of workshops to help presenters prepare, including sessions on public speaking  Sessions are moderated meaning someone is on hand to help guide the question period
  5. 5. HOW DO I CHOOSE WHAT TO PRESENT? ①Present a paper or project that went well in the Fall semester, or something you’re doing now that will be ready by late March ②Work with your instructor to strengthen it and turn it into a presentation ③Ask a faculty member to sign your proposal
  6. 6. VOLUNTEERING OPPORTUNITIES  Volunteers are needed  Presenters are sometimes students who volunteered the previous year and who now want to increase their involvement; volunteering is a good way to see how the conference works.
