IVC/SC Student Research Symposium

Why should you come to the IVC/SC Student Research Symposium?

  • You should come because out of all the opportunities and experiences available at college, conferences are -- according to what our own students tell us -- the most enjoyable, memorable, and sometimes even the most life-changing.

  • You should come because this is an opportunity to start learning what conferences are and what they can do for you. Attending one will never be more easier or more convenient: It's close, it's free, and it's open to everyone!
  • You should come because it's one of the rare conferences that allow presenters to discuss -- and get help on -- preliminary and continuing research as well as completed research.
  • You should come if you're a Saddleback Certificate-Track Honors Program student who wants a fun and interesting way to do some community/school service.
  • You should come no matter what role you take. Be a presenter, be a volunteer, or be in the audience. All these experiences are valuable.

Symposium FAQs

This event is open to all students. Honors Program participation is NOT required.

 To apply: Ask the faculty member you worked with to be your "mentor" and work with you on your abstract. The Honors Program Office will help with grammar, style, etc. If you haven't written an abstract before, read Abstracts 101 and follow the SCCUR abstract guidelines. Once your mentor says you're ready, submit your abstract to https://socccdstudentresearchconference.submittable.com/submit.

(If your research is complete, you might consider applying for SCCUR too. You may use the same abstract.
The IVC/SC Symposium is a great dress rehearsal for SCCUR!)
