Montana State University to host Student Research Celebration on April 25

BOZEMAN - Montana State University will host its spring Student Research Celebration from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday, April 25, in the Strand Union Building ballrooms. The event is free and open to the public.

This celebration, organized by the MSU Undergraduate Scholars Program, will highlight the research of more than 130 undergraduate and graduate students from academic programs across campus. Additionally, campus organizations will be present to share the resources they offer to students.

Two poster sessions in the SUB ballrooms will feature students' research. The morning session will be held from 10 a.m. to noon, followed by a break from noon to 1 p.m. with refreshments provided. The afternoon session will be held from 1 to 3 p.m.

The Student Research Celebration provides a chance for the campus and the community to learn more about the research process for students, according to Emily Smith, program coordinator for the Undergraduate Scholars Program.

"This is a great event for students interested in learning more about research because they can talk to other students firsthand in terms of what the day-to-day workflow looks like and how to network for finding mentors," said Smith. "I often like to invite freshmen and sophomores to the event for this reason."

The interim director of the Undergraduate Scholars Program, Anna Tuttle, highlighted the hard work of both Smith and the USP's student employee, Zoe Seaford, in coordinating the event.

"Emily has done a wonderful job putting this event together," said Tuttle. "The countless hours Emily and Zoe have put into outreach, organizing and more will culminate in a fantastic celebration of 30 years of undergraduate research at MSU."
