From science to sculpting, Longwood students have it covered. We've collected a range of undergraduate and graduate scholarly work and achievements, across all of Longwood's disciplines, to showcase at this year's symposium.

Symposium 2018 - Tuesday, April 24

8 a.m. – 4 p.m.

This year you'll hear about research and scholarly work from more than 600 undergraduate and graduate students from Longwood's academic colleges.

What's it like? 

You'll be in a semiprofessional setting, comparable to an international conference or discipline-specific symposium, and talk to people from across campus — and the local community — about your research. 

Here are a few ways you can present your scholarly work: 

  • Oral presentation
  • Poster sessions
  • Performances
  • Art exhibits

Also, you'll explore and develop skills in these areas: 

  • Working independently
  • Collaborating on research and presentation
  • Translating knowledge to a broad audience
  • Public speaking 
  • Answering audience questions
