Last month, DePaul students and faculty participated in the second annual BIG EAST Student Research Poster Symposium at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
The event highlights the outstanding work of undergraduate students in faculty-mentored research projects from each of the 11 universities in the BIG EAST Conference. Through a rigorous application process, DePaul selected five student representatives:
Students from each university presented their research to judges, who ranked them on factors including visual quality content, results and discussion, presentation style and responses to questions. Winners were recognized during the BIG EAST Championship men's basketball game.
The competition also provided students with the opportunity to meet peers from other universities and to experience New York. Faculty members Lauren Miller and Thiru Ramaraj, who traveled with the students, also served as judges during the competition.
