First Experiences in Research Symposium April 18
Celebrate undergraduate research, creative work, and achievement in the arts and sciences at the First Experiences in Research Symposium, Thursday, April 18, from 4-6 p.m. in the William Pitt Union Ballroom. This symposium provides First Experiences in Research students with the opportunity to exhibit, present, and promote their research to the University of Pittsburgh community.
This symposium highlights the work of 175 students who participated in First Experiences in Research through the Office of Undergraduate Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activity. These poster presentations showcase research students conducted throughout the spring semester in the natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities. For these students, this first foray into faculty-mentored research often serves as a gateway to more sophisticated, independent research.
Summer Sessions Registration begins February 18
The new summer sessions course schedule at the University of Pittsburgh provides an exciting opportunity for students to catch up on needed credits, stay on track to graduate in four years, or get ahead for the fall term. By reducing course overlap, expanding class availability, and maximizing day and evening hours, the new summer sessions schedule allows students to enroll in two classes in a row without course conflict, take additional upper-division classes in their major, and complete core requirements. With hundreds of classes offered during day and evening hours, students also have the flexibility to enroll in courses without forgoing summer jobs, internships, or family vacations.
