BHC Honors Research Symposium

Bay Honors Consortium Conference 2015


The Community College
Honors Research Symposium 


The annual student research conference of the Bay Honors Consortium is hosted in alternate years by Stanford University and U.C. Berkeley.

Because this is an upstate conference, it's also a weekend-long commitment. We take a college van early Friday (possibly Thursday) and come home late Sunday.

The Honors Student Council of the Associated Student Government (subject to ASG guidelines) and the Honors Program will contribute toward the expenses of registration and lodging and will provide van transportation to the conference.






The Spring 2015 Bay Honors Symposium
will be held at
Stanford University
in Palo Alto, CA.
