Lynn University’s Student Symposium was launched several years ago to celebrate student research accomplishments at Lynn. The event honors the finest of our students' work, and offers students an opportunity to have a unique and valuable academic experience. While this event began in the College of Arts and Sciences, it is now offered university-wide.

Several awards are presented, with cash prizes of $100. Awards are presented in each of these categories:

  • Oral presentation: a brief conference-style talk that includes a digital visual aid
  • Research poster: an academic poster presentation of original research
  • Full research paper: a substantial piece of academic writing including original research using scholarly sources
