Undergraduate Researchers Participate in Forum

Feb. 23, 2015
 
Each year undergraduate student researchers participate in opportunities to share their research. Several SENR undergraduates participated in this year's College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences Undergraduate Research Forum held on February 19. 
 
Held annually, the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences Gamma Sigma Delta Undergraduate Research Forum, provides a means for undergraduate students to share their research with members and friends of the OSU community; recognizes the significant contributions to research by OSU undergraduates; and facilitates exchange between students, faculty, and the public. Participation in this event helps to prepare students for the Denman Undergraduate Research Forum held each spring on the campus of The Ohio State University.
