18th Annual Graduate Student Day Highlights

On Friday, April 10, The Graduate School hosted Graduate Student Day—our annual celebration of the research and creativity of USC’s 6,200+ master’s and doctoral students. This year’s event was our most successful yet with nearly 170 students from 60 academic programs participating.

Competition categories included Creative Research Presentations, Oral Research Presentations, Poster Research Presentations, and Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Presentations. SPARC winners and students completing the Preparing Future Faculty (PFF) Program were recognized.

Thanks to the many faculty and staff who volunteered as judges, to the students who shared their important work, and to the University of South Carolina Press for providing prizes.
