Spring OUR workshop series

Begun by the South Carolina Honors College in 2001, Discovery Day has been the university-wide event where undergraduates, in all disciplines, present their research and scholarship activities. Originally as a poster session only, beginning in 2006, students also have the opportunity to make oral and creative presentations as well as present their work through visual arts displays. The Spring OUR Workshop series is underway. Please share these opportunities for skill development with your undergraduate researchers.
