Student Symposium April 25

Students will present their independent research on topics ranging from Pablo Neruda’s poetry and politics and Beyoncé’s status as a feminist icon to an examination of ACL tears in female athletes and a look at the climate of ancient Iberia at Cornell College’s 19th annual Student Symposium on April 25. The symposium will take place from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Thomas Commons.

Since 1997 the symposium has been an academic highlight at Cornell, featuring students’ original research through oral and poster presentations.

This year more than 65 students will participate, with 34 giving oral presentations, two giving performances, and 32 giving poster presentations. Each student participant works closely with a faculty sponsor in developing the presentations. The projects, many of which are initiated by students, generally take several months to prepare.
