Greetings undergraduate student researchers!
There seem to be limited opportunities for UCSC undergraduates, especially those studying the humanities and social sciences, to come together and share research interests and projects with each other. That is where SURU-HASS comes in. As inspiring researchers, it is vital that we come together to do this. Remember, nothing great is done alone! 

At its core, SURU-HASS (the Symposium for Undergraduate Research at UCSC - Humanities And Social Sciences) offers students the opportunity to speak about their research, or research that they are interested in, while in a formal and friendly setting. All are welcome -- even if you do not present your own research, come to learn and support your peers! There are many benefits to being a part of the symposium; here are some examples:  
  • Practice speaking with others about research in an academic setting
  • Gain valuable feedback regarding your research from experienced researchers
  • Interact with other undergraduates who are also interested in research
  • Have the opportunity to win an awesome prize!
  • Enjoy free refreshments and snacks
  • Build, or start building, your CV

The 2017 Symposium for Undergraduate Research at UCSC took place on Saturday, December 2 from 12 pm - 4 pm. Check back on our website soon for highlights from the event!
Thank you to Stevenson Provost Alice Yang for supporting the event!
