  • You can meet potential faculty mentors!
  • Learn about research currently going on within the Fulton Schools
  • See research on display from our 200+ student presenters
  • Light refreshments available.

How can you make the most out of this experience?

Introduce yourself to others. Don’t be afraid to tell them your name, major and why you came. It’s a great way to start a conversation and build a network of people with similar interests!

Talk with the student researchers. Ask questions about their research. Learn how they got started and how they found their mentor. You don’t just have to talk about research topics, either. Enjoy getting to know these amazing students. Also, at this symposium, the more researchers you chat with, the better your odds of winning some FURI swag!

Ask for an introduction to faculty. The students you chat with may be able to refer you to faculty who are passionate about supporting undergraduate researchers. They may be able to connect you that day or later on this semester. See how you can get connected, it’s worth the effort!

Take research highlights home with you. FURI abstract books will be available in case you want to look over the research highlights on your own afterward.

Sign up to be in the know. We’ll have an interest table for visitors who want to learn more about how to apply for FURI in the next application cycle, how to sign up for lab crawls, faculty meet-and-greets, and so much more!
