students sharing posters at symposium

More than 200 graduate students will participate in NC State’s Graduate Student Research Symposium March 21, 1:30-4 p.m., McKimmon Center. Co-sponsored by the Graduate School and Graduate Student Association, the research symposium is the signature event of NC State’s Graduate Education Week, March 19-24.

The Graduate Student Research Symposium will feature research posters from NC State graduate students across all disciplines. The top student presentations will be recognized in each discipline. The event is free and open to the public. Abstracts of student posters are available online.

During the week, the Graduate School also will celebrate the 50th work anniversary of Peggy Olive, graduate student liaison. Olive came to work at the Graduate School in 1968, and she has no plans to retire. Find out what Olive had to say when she celebrated her 48th work anniversary in 2016.

In addition to the symposium, here are other campus events of interest to graduate students that will be offered on campus during Graduate Education Week. Some events require preregistration, so check event websites for details.
