Oberlin College Undergraduate Research Symposium

The Oberlin College Undergraduate Research Symposium is a two-day annual conference showcasing the research of Oberlin College and Conservatory students. Students present talks and posters about research they conducted during the summer on campus and at various sites around the globe, working with corporations, government agencies, hospitals, museums, non-profit organizations, research institutes, and universities. Graduating students present talks about their original, independent or collaborative work conducted for seniors honors, program/departmental capstones, research assistantships, community based projects, private readings, summer research, or course-based research.
