We will always be grateful for your never-ending dedication, intelligence and guidance. Happy retirement!


There will be two sessions of poster only presentations and two concurrent creative works exhibit sessions, both will be judged* by College and Discipline representatives if students choose to have their project judged.  The top presentations, as selected by the judges, from the symposium receive a certificate and are invited to a reception by the local chapter of Sigma Xi.

The NC State Spring Undergraduate Research & Creativity Symposium is open to all undergraduate students that have worked with NC State mentors/faculty or who are NC State undergraduate students who have worked with NC State faculty or faculty at other colleges and universities. Participants in formal undergraduate research programs at NC State University are welcome to participate as well. Non-presenters do not need to register.

Creative Works Exhibits were added to the Annual Undergraduate Research Spring Symposium in 2017

The spring undergraduate research symposium will provide those with creative or visual projects to display those works during the event. Students within the arts, textiles and design programs, for which a poster presentation format does not accurately convey the project, will be accepted to choose to exhibit. Space will be limited and not all requests to present as an exhibit may be accepted. Those not selected to present as an exhibit may choose to create a poster presentation and present in that format. At this time we are unable to accommodate performances or performance art. See the NC State Symposium Page for more details.

*Students may choose to not have their project judged.

Registration Open from Feb 28, 2018 through April 2, 2018
