The Summer Research Poster Symposium was developed to give Allegheny students the opportunity to present their completed summer research projects to the campus community. Allegheny students who conducted research with Allegheny faculty, or who conducted research off-campus, at other institutions, are invited to present at the Symposium. We generally hold the Symposium on Family Weekend so that a student’s family can attend. We also encourage first and second year students to attend so they can learn about summer research opportunities. Allegheny College has held the Summer Research Poster Symposium since the fall of 2002.
