The Showcase of Osprey Advancements in Research and Scholarship (SOARS) is a university-wide conference that allows for undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, and staff to present their research or creative projects. SOARS is a welcoming environment for undergraduates to begin practicing their presentation skills in front of their fellow peers and faculty. SOARS is interdisciplinary, so all students from all colleges are welcome to present. SOARS consists of poster presentations for undergraduate and graduate students (55 minutes in length).
All university members and community members are welcome to attend SOARS. If you are presenting or are a faculty, staff, or administrator of UNF then we welcome you to join us for lunch. For those not presenting, there will be refreshments in the lobby. If you are planning to attend but not present, you do not have to register.
