The Quinnipiac University Interdisciplinary Program for Research & Scholarship (QUIP-RS) held its annual symposium on Saturday, September 17th in CCE (CCE118) and Atrium as part of Bobcat weekend.
The symposium was open to all students, faculty, staff and parents. Refreshments and appetizers were provided.
QUIP-RS is an immersive, multi-disciplinary undergraduate 8-week summer research and creative program where students work full time with a faculty mentor on a specific research project and meet weekly with other QUIP-RS fellows and faculty to share their findings. Acceptance to the program is competitive and all students receive funds for their research and summer stipend. At the symposium we celebrate their hard work and transformative experiences.
