UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – Undergraduate students from University Park and Penn State campuses will present their research on Wednesday, April 5 at Penn State’s annual Undergraduate Exhibition. The event is open to the public.

Held in the HUB-Robeson Center’s Lounges and Heritage Hall, the exhibition will feature 230 posters and more than 270 student presenters. Students were encouraged to submit work spanning the categories of arts and humanities, engineering, health and life sciences, physical sciences, social and behavioral sciences, and course-based projects (all disciplines).

Faculty, post-doctoral researcher, and graduate student volunteers will judge the posters according to their content and display, as well as the student’s oral presentation. Judging sessions will take place from 9:15 a.m. to 2 p.m.

An awards ceremony will begin shortly after 4 p.m. in Heritage Hall. In addition to poster awards, the ceremony will celebrate the creative accomplishments of Penn State undergraduate students by including performances from students in music, dance, and theatre.

The top entries in each poster category will be awarded monetary prizes, with The Gerard A. Hauser Award given to the entry judged best overall. Other awards include the Phi Kappa Phi Peter T. Luckie Award for Outstanding Exhibit by a Junior and the University Libraries Award for Information Literacy.

Undergraduate students presenting their research at the Exhibition benefit from the guidance and support of faculty supervisors.
