USC Aiken Research Day

Beginning in fall 2015, the Center for Research Excellence began a program to brand and rename "Research Day."  This process was initiated based on a desire to more accurately reflect the breadth of student work across the USC Aiken campus.  To accomplish this, Dr. Michael Fowler's Introduction to Graphic Design students were tasked with creating a new logo and brand for the event.  The winning design, which was created by the team of Lauren Carver and Linh-Da Nguyen, is simple, yet descriptive and eye-catching. We are therefore pleased to unveil USC Aiken's Scholar Showcase.

USC Aiken's Scholar's Showcase is a day-long event held each spring to showcase the diversity of our undergraduate student's research and creative endeavors and fosters the communication of their accomplishments.

Our ninth annual Research Day was held on Friday, April 15, 2016 in the USC Aiken Student Activities Center.  The event showcased the research/creative activities of 137 undergraduates in both oral and poster sessions.  

The Center for Research Excellence will host the tenth annual Scholar's Showcase on April 14, 2017.  The 2017 event will feature a poster session, concurrent oral sessions in the humanities and sciences, and a biomedical symposium. In addition to more traditional oral or poster presentations, creative projects will be showcased through visual art displays, theatrical or musical performances, or readings.

The event is free, but registration is required for participation. We encourage all USC Aiken faculty to support this exceptional undergraduate experience through undergraduate mentorship, suitable course projects, or participation as session moderators. 

10th Annual Scholar's Showcase 2017 date: April 14, 2017
