Description

The Graduate Immersion Conference will be held in Derby Hall on September 27 - 28, 2019. The goal of the conference is to bring about a dozen undergraduates to campus from underrepresented backgrounds in academia who are doing great research. Each student will present their research and received targeted feedback. The hope is that students will learn about the day and life of a graduate student, learn a little about OSU and our department, and learn about applying to graduate programs.
