**NOTE: We are currently ONLY able to print posters for current Freshman Research Scholars or Wentz Research Scholars presenting at our Undergraduate Research Symposium. We do not have the resources to offer poster printing to anyone else at this time. We suggest visiting FedEx located in the basement of the Student Union. If the poster is for an academic purpose, they offer a significant discount.
