We do not have the resources to offer poster printing to anyone else at this time. 

2015 Undergraduate Research Symposium

The newly inaugurated Scholar Development Undergraduate Research Symposium set records with an impressive display of more than 80 poster presentations from the 2014-15 Freshman and Wentz Research Scholars, which are listed below with links to full-sized PDFs of the posters.  Thanks goes to the large team of OSU faculty, staff, administrators and alumni who made this celebration of discovery a possibility!
