Student Symposium                      ORAL PRESENTATIONS DAY

Hear from some of our participants:

"The Student Symposium was a great experience for me because it gave me a way to be professional and also put my research out there to my faculty and my friends. It’s a really fun way for people to present the work they’ve been doing throughout the semester." 

- Phillip Oechsle, Senior, Anthropology


“The Student Symposium gave me the opportunity to present my work and get feedback from people and also it was really nice seeing other people get interested in my work… come showcase your work because it’s worth seeing!”

- Olamide Ayeni, Graduate Student, Environmental Science 


“Being here at the Symposium is super, super amazing. I love being involved and around all the other students who are also super passionate about [their research]. My best advice to you is to just get out there, have that hunger, do what you need to do and you’ll get ahead one way or another.”

- Angel Esquivel Vazquez, Freshman, Biology and Chemistry, Teacher-Scholar Program 

For more than twenty-nine years the Student Symposium at Ball State University has provided students with the opportunity to present their creative and scholarly projects while competing for cash prizes and gaining valuable insight from faculty and staff judges from across the University. 

The Symposium encourages interdisciplinary discourse, allowing students to learn from each other about engaging topics. The symposium also provides an opportunity for student participants to discuss their work with a broad audience and is open to any student from Ball State University (undergraduate and graduate), Burris Laboratory School, and the Indiana Academy for Science, Mathematics, and Humanities.
