Undergraduate Research Conferences

One of the most valuable experiences available to Honors students is participation in undergraduate research conferences. These really are "extraordinary" in the true sense of the word. Most undergraduates never participate in research conferences.

Although conferences are not part of the usual undergraduate experience, every Saddleback student who has ever attended one -- whether as a presenter, a moderator, or "just" an audience member -- has said it was rewarding and exciting (and fun).

Students who have attended one conference always want to attend another one!

The Honors Student Council of the Associated Student Government,
the Saddleback College Honors Program, and the Office of Instruction
help support registration fees and other expenses of ALL Saddleback College students
whose work is accepted at these conferences,
 whether or not they participate in other aspects of the Honors Program

Our regular calendar includes four conferences at which students may submit work in any discipline. The locations and dates for this year's conferences are below. Links are active only for those conferences for which there is current activity.
