All submissions for 2017 Fair are closed. Thank you to all who participated!

The First Year Seminar Research Exchange Fair is an annual event that provides an opportunity for SLU First Year Students to share and present the research they conduct in their FYS classes with fellow students, parents, professors, and the Saint Lawrence community. The students are able to teach attendants of the event about their work and research in either an oral or written presentation, while also learning important communication skills and gaining the experience of a professional research conference.

The festival is a great way for students to think creatively about topics that they are interested in under the topic of their FYS class. There are themes ranging from Statistical Analysis to Global Cultural Immersion. Each student is tasked with formulating their own topic and research thesis, under the guidance of their professor, and then are given the semester to accumulate their research into both a written and presentation format for grading. The experience of the festival is an invaluable one, in which students are lead through the entire process of research, collaboration of other people's ideas, creative analysis, and presentation.
