Student Research

Showcasing the Sciences at Purchase College

Begun in 1981, the annual Student Symposium provides an opportunity for seniors to present their senior project research to a large audience of peers, alumni, family, faculty, and members of the community. Two concurrent sessions in anthropology, biochemistry, biology, chemistry, economics, environmental studies, gender studies, Latin American studies, mathematics/computer science, political science, psychology, and sociology take place throughout the morning. Seniors who participate in the symposium consider it a highlight of their undergraduate experience.

Our Student Symposium is held every year in late April or early May.  Please keep your eye on our events page for details about the next symposium.
