Thanks to all who came out to support and celebrate our newest students recently during the first Spring Pass Through the Pillars! We appreciate faculty, staff and current students coming out to clap, cheer and celebrate despite chilly temperatures. The new students appreciated the warm welcome to our campus community!

SUNY Undergraduate Research Conference abstract deadline Feb. 19

SUNY Oneonta has been chosen to host the SUNY Undergraduate Research Conference (SURC) on Friday, April 20, 2018. SURC is an annual, multidisciplinary event that brings together hundreds of undergraduate students and faculty mentors from across the SUNY system for a full day of activities, including student presentations (poster sessions, oral presentations, performances, visual art, readings, etc.), a SUNY Graduate School Fair, and professional development opportunities for students and faculty. SURC ’18 at SUNY Oneonta will also feature a keynote speaker and luncheon. We are very pleased that Dr. Kristina M. Johnson, Chancellor of SUNY, has accepted our invitation to serve as the Keynote Speaker.

Students interested in presenting at SURC 2018 must submit abstracts online by February 19, 2018, and will be notified of acceptance by March 9. The deadline to register for the conference is March 19. Please note that there will be no SUNY Oneonta Student Research & Creative Activity (SRCA) Day in 2018. SURC is THE opportunity for our undergraduate students to present projects to the campus and greater community in 2018!

The SURC ‘18 @ Oneonta Steering Committee is identifying potential funding to support the registration fees for SUNY Oneonta student presenters. More information will be forthcoming, but be sure to submit abstracts for presentation by the firm deadline of February 19!
