SURCA 2018 will be on
Monday, April 2
in the CUB
SURCA is the only WSU-wide event featuring the faculty-mentored research, scholarship, and creative activities of undergraduates from all majors, grades, and campuses—work that makes an original intellectual or creative contribution to a discipline. It is a symposium hosted by the Office of Undergraduate Research, which is part of WSU Undergraduate Education. SURCA thanks its sponsors, without whom this event could not take place.
