An electronic version of the program is posted below and paper copies of the program will  be available on April 29.

Seniors are encouraged to check the symposium FAQ  as they are prepare for the symposium. In addition to the events scheduled for the symposium itself, the program lists other senior projects of note taking place on other dates in the spring semester. You can find a draft of the 2016 Symposium Program here.

Departments may consider coordinating the symposium with existing programming of senior or honors presentations, either by holding their event on the same day, or by encouraging their seniors and honors students to present at the symposium, at the departmental event, or both. Advisors are encouraged to work closely with their students as they prepare for the symposium.

The symposium is sponsored by the Office of the Dean of Arts and Sciences and the Office of the Dean of Studies. If you have questions about the 2016 symposium, please contact us at We look forward to seeing you on April 29.
