The Office of Graduate Studies (CLAS) invites the Villanova Community to support and celebrate the research of graduate students on Friday, Nov. 11 at 1 p.m. Oral presentations will take place in the Connelly Cinema followed by poster presentations in the Art Gallery.

Research is an essential part of the graduate student experience in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Villanova. Ranging from Biology and Chemistry to History and Philosophy, CLAS graduate students pursue a wide variety of fascinating research projects. For this symposium, students were invited to use the Three Minute Thesis (3MT) format to submit a three-minute video about their work. Students were instructed to prepare to address a broad, non-specialist audience. The symposium will feature live oral and poster presentations from the top submissions along with a meet and greet with the presenters and graduate faculty. Refreshments will be served and we look forward to seeing you there!

This ACS approved event, sponsored by the Office of Graduate Studies (CLAS) and co-sponsored by Falvey Memorial Library and the Center for Graduate Research and Education, is free and open to the public.
