Seven students from SUNY Fredonia will show the results of their research on four projects at the first SUNY-wide symposium of undergraduate research and creative activities on Tuesday, April 13, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the well of the Legislative Office Building in Albany, NY. The midday poster session will allow SUNY undergraduates the opportunity to present their research and creative academic projects to a large audience at Albany’s Legislative Office Building.

Emphasizing undergraduate student research projects and their impact on New York State, the event is titled, “SUNY Undergraduates Shaping New York’s Future: A Showcase of Scholarly Posters at the Capitol.”   It showcases the research and creative achievements of undergraduate students from all 64 SUNY institutions.
