The date is set—Friday, March 8, 2013—and final details are coming together for the 10th Annual Graduate Student Symposium at the School of Environmental and Forest Sciences (SEFS)!
Held in the Forest Club Room, the annual symposium is a day dedicated to graduate students and their research. It is organized by and for graduate students, with the support of the Xi Sigma Pi Forestry Honor Society.
At this day-long event, we highlight the work of our graduate students through presentations and a poster session. We also invite outside panelists, often SEFS alumni, to present on a topic of interest. Ultimately, the symposium provides graduate students with the opportunity to present to their colleagues and professors, and gain valuable experience and feedback. This year’s theme is the Future of Forestry, so we will be asking panelists questions about what the future holds for the field, and we will hear from our future foresters and researchers at SEFS.
The Graduate Student Symposium runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and a tentative schedule of events is now available online. If you are still interested in submitting an abstract for a poster or presentation, please contact Ellen Weir. There will be an award ceremony recognizing the best presenters and posters at the symposium.
So join us on March 8 and celebrate your colleagues’ projects and research, and the success of our field today and for years to come!
