“This annual event may be my favorite day of the academic year,” said Dominique Treboux, Ph.D., director of undergraduate research and associate professor of psychology at SJC. “There is a buzz in the room and an energy that is contagious as we experience our students actively engaged in their subject matter, taking ownership of their work and sharing with others. We invite everyone to come be a part of this special day.”

Sponsored by all SJC academic departments, students will present research papers, art exhibitions and posters that were completed as part of an independent study, honors project, research project or other analytical activity.
