Student Research Symposium

The Saturday of Homecoming Weekend in October of Each Year

The California Lutheran University Student Research Symposium showcases the work of CLU's top students. Most of these students have spent their entire summer working full-time side-by-side with a faculty mentor on their project. The original results that are shared at this venue are likely also to be presented at professional conferences throughout the region and country. Students from a wide variety of disciplines including Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Exercise Science, Global Studies, Math, Psychology, and Religion shared their work in 15-minute oral presentations at the start of the morning in Richter Hall (9:00 am - 10:30 am), followed by an interactive poster session in the Ahmanson Atrium (10:30 am - 1:00 pm).

The event was free and open to the community-at-large as well. This year again had a standing-room-only crowd celebrating the work of these bright young researchers.

Next year's event is again planned for the Saturday of CLU's homecoming weekend.
