Guilford Undergraduate Symposium
Guilford’s Undergraduate Symposium (GUS) provides an opportunity to showcase the variety and quality of original work that Guilford students pursue in their classes, senior projects and theses, as well as in a range of venues outside Guilford. Guilford’s first annual undergraduate symposium was held in 2008.
The first GUS involved 60 students presenting 50 oral presentations, posters, performances, exhibits of original creative work and panel discussions. Students from all academic divisions and almost every department, major and program have presented work at GUS. Since 2008, both participation and the variety of work presented has grown steadily, with more than 140 students participating in 90 presentations at the 5th annual GUS in 2012. Over the course of a day and in locations all over campus oral presentations, posters, exhibits, panel discussions and performances are offered to the College community. (Several of these student presentations can be viewed on YouTube.)
Symposium sessions are also held for the Board of Visitors and the Board of Trustees.
