Reminder: York’s Undergraduate Research Fair and Art Walk takes place March 1

Mark Wednesday, March 1 on your calendar and plan to attend the fifth annual Undergraduate Research Fair and Art Walk, where undergraduate students will share their work with the greater York community.

The fair honours undergraduate student researchers and provides them with the opportunity to share their work by presenting a poster session. The juried research fair is an excellent opportunity for experiential learning, as undergrads share their work in a friendly, cross-curricular environment.

The multidisciplinary event, running 11am to 1:30pm in the Scott Library Collaboratory, second floor, will coincide with the opening of the Scott Library Art Walk exhibition, which showcases the work of student artists or designers. One artwork submission will be selected for the cover of the e-journal Revue YOUR Review (York Online Undergraduate Research), which is associated with the fair, and prizes will be awarded to select poster session presenters.

A musical performance by students from the Department of Music will take place at 12:45pm.

Everyone is invited to attend the Undergraduate Research Fair and Art Walk to celebrate York’s undergraduate researchers and artists. A reception will follow the fair.

Last year’s fair drew a large audience of students and faculty from across the York community, as well as friends and family of student-presenters.

The event is jointly sponsored by York University Libraries & the Office of the Vice President Research.
