    “Managing Stress and Maintaining Wellness”

    Stress is a part of life.  Navigating the new skills and strategies for researching online and working in a distance format may add to that stress. In this SCoRe session, we’ll dig into some strategies and skills that can help us manage stress well and keep us feeling healthy and well.

    Shannon Amundson, Director Financial Aid


    We will go over actual expenses and income and use a spreadsheet to go over wants and needs and what is possible for you.  This is intended to help you not just this summer, but beyond.  Come with questions, it is way better if this is interactive, then we can get to the things you really care about.  There is not much we don’t talk about with regards to money, there are no bad questions!

    “Showcasing Your Research – How to Create an Effective Poster”

    A key outcome of the SCoRe program is a poster showcasing your hard work during parents’ weekend. But what are the key steps in making an effective research poster? This session will help you start thinking about this process and the important parts of your poster.     

    Tuesday, August 4, 2020

    Dr. Traci Freeman, Director Colket Center

    "Writing Effective Abstracts of Your Research"

    Writing an abstract for a research project is a complicated rhetorical task that masquerades as a simple one. How do you transform a lengthy written project or weeks of research into a brief and intelligible synopsis of your work? In this workshop, we will define the role and generic features of an abstract. Then participants will draft and workshop abstracts of their research. By the end of this session, participants should have a solid working draft of an abstract to incorporate into their posters for the Undergraduate Research Symposium.
