Undergraduate Research Exposition

The annual Undergraduate Research Exposition is a College-wide event held in April of each year in which University of Rochester students at all levels and in all areas of study are invited to present their investigative and creative work. The Expo reflects the passion for learning that enlivens the University, professors and students alike, and that finds expression in varied forms, in every area of study.
