Students to present their undergraduate research

Tthe annual Georgia State Undergraduate Research Conference (GSURC) is set to take place in the University Center on April 10 where students plan to showcase their undergraduate research.

Students will share their finding through oral presentations, posters, artistic displays and performances.

Participants at GSURC benefit by receiving a faculty sponsors and prepares them for national and local conferences. Students are allowed to perform undergraduate research and it is a great prep for graduate school,” McKenzie said.
