Senior Project Information Sessions

All Honors students are welcome to attend any of the Senior Project information sessions; however, we realize that not everyone can. For this reason, presentations are held in both the fall and spring semesters.

There are often supplemental information sessions too, such as those directly related to writing, citation styles, composing a literature review, as well as departmental presentations (such as the library and IRB) who speak directly to Honors students about resources that are available to them and the processes and procedures directly related to conducting research.

So, add the dates below to your calendar, bring your lunch if you would like, something to take notes with, and join us—the information contained in these sessions is extremely useful.

Info Session #1: Senior Project Open Forum

WHEN: Friday, September 23, 2016 (12:00 to 12:50 pm)
WHERE: College Hall Room 100 (CAB Reading Room)

This is an open forum for any Honors student who has specific questions or who would like more information about the Honors Senior Project. We will discuss questions such as:

  • What is research?
  • When should I start thinking about my Senior Project?
  • How do I find a mentor?
  • What options are available for my major?
  • How should my proposal be formatted?
  • What is the timeline for completing my project?
  • And any others you may have...

Info Session #2: Professional Presentation Tips

WHEN: Friday, October 07, 2016 (12:00 to 12:50 pm)
WHERE: College Hall Room 100 (CAB Reading Room)

This session will cover general information about best practices when giving a professional presentation, but also what to expect when you present at the Honors Research Symposium (HRS). Additionally, we will discuss fear of public speaking, how to overcome this, and tips on using PowerPoint and/or other visual presentation software. All HRS presenters are strongly encouraged to attend, if at all possible.

Info Session #3: A Guide to the Honors College Senior Project Template & Formatting

WHEN: Friday, October 28, 2016 (12:00 to 12:50 pm)
WHERE: College Hall Room 100 (CAB Reading Room)

The Honors College template for Senior Projects can often be tedious, frustrating, and overwhelming. This session will cover some of the basic formatting issues you may encounter and how to correct them before submitting your project.
All Honors students are welcome, as the information provided is directly relevant to anyone who uses Microsoft Word. Students who are currently working on their Senior Projects are strongly encouraged to attend, if at all possible. This session could help prevent unnecessary stress in formatting and completing your Senior Project.
