GES Symposium

The GES Symposium is a celebration and culmination of the GES student’s undergraduate research efforts. GES students presenting at this symposium conducted faculty-mentored research, analyzed their results, and compiled their findings into a thesis format. Many theses are converted into peer-reviewed journal publications; a feat usually accomplished by students once in graduate school.
