Students Participate in Undergraduate Research Conference

Several St. Lawrence University students participated in the fourth annual New York Six Undergraduate Research Conference, which took place on Sept. 20 at Hobart and William Smith Colleges in Geneva, New York.

The conference provides undergraduate students with the opportunity to present their work at a professional meeting without the barriers of high travel and registration fees. It's also an excellent opportunity for faculty of the six institutions to meet, foster collaborations, and share the work of their research labs. Students could present their research as an oral presentation or as a poster presentation.

The conference was sponsored by the New York Six, a consortium of upstate New York liberal arts institutions that comprises Colgate University, Hamilton College, Hobart and William Smith Colleges, St. Lawrence University, Skidmore College, and Union College.
