Research Forum Winners Compete at State
Graduate students from across the state came together at the University of South Florida to showcase their research and creative projects on Friday at the Annual Statewide Graduate Student Research Symposium. University of Central Florida came out successful with one first place winner and two second place winners from just seven categories.
The Symposium, put on by the Florida Council of Graduate Deans, allowed students to earn bragging rights for top research projects in the state, as well as provided them opportunities to share scholarly research and to network and discuss possible research collaborations with other students and faculty in the state of Florida.
