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 on topics such as:
- The Impact of Political Views, Hunting, and Rural Residence on Views toward Gun Control
- Using Regression to Predict Student Success in Statistics
- Chimeric PD1- expressing T cells as a potential treatment of prostate and bladder cancers
- The Effects of Cigarette Butt Pollution on Phytoplankton
- Offender Risk Factors of High School Shooters
- The Impact of Race, Gender, and Age on Fear of Crime
What's it like?
You'll be in a semi-professional 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 way you can present your scholarly work:
- Oral presentation
- Poster sessions
- Art exhibits
Also, you'll explore and develop skills in these areas:
- Confidence to work independently
- Research and Presentation Collaboration
- Translate knowledge to a broad audience
- Public Speaking
- Answer audience questions
Undergraduate Students - March 2, 2018 at 5 p.m.
