BATON ROUGE – One-hundred and ninety-eight undergraduate students representing LSU, ULM, UNO and BRCC will compete in LSU Discover Day, an annual symposium of undergraduate research and creativity, on Tuesday, April 4, in the LSU Student Union. 

Student presentations will cover a wide variety of topics with students from each of LSU’s senior colleges represented. Students will present posters, oral presentations and art pieces, competing for top awards decided by faculty judges. Ginesse Listi, director of the FACES Lab, will give the keynote speech at 4 p.m. All Discover Day events are free and open to the public.

The poster session and juried art show will occur in the morning, and the oral presentations will occur in the afternoon. For exact times and locations for each event, please visit the LSU Discover Day webpage.

Participation in research is an excellent way for undergraduate students to explore ideas, apply knowledge gained in the classroom to real-world experiences, work one-on-one with a faculty mentor and to better prepare for the workforce or graduate education. Visitors are encouraged to ask the participants about their research and opportunities.
