Discover USC is Friday, April 20th!

The second annual Discover USC takes place on Friday, April 20, 2018, at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center. The Graduate School is proud to take part in this university-wide celebration of research.

During the week leading up to Discover USC, we will be showcasing graduate student research with Spotlight Features to show how proud we are of the work you do. Be sure to follow us on social media with #DiscoverUofSC2018 , #GRADprofdev and #UofSC3MT2018 to see all the great work UofSC graduate students are doing.

Finally, don’t forget to come out and support your fellow graduate students on the big day. You can search for a presenter and also check out the schedule of events. Graduate students will present posters or take part in the Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition. The finals for 3MT will take place at 3pm in the Columbia Ballroom C on the upper level of the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center.

In addition to our panel of judges who will determine the winner of each heat, you can cast one or more votes for your fan favorite. One fan favorite across all six preliminary heats will be selected through fan voting. Simply tweet, "I vote for [Name of 3MT participant] as fan favorite #UofSC3MT2018 #DiscoverUofSC2018." Fan favorite voting will be open from 9:30a.m. through 2:30p.m., and you can vote as many times as you'd like. The fan favorite with the most votes will receive $150 and participate in the finals.

We are looking forward to learning about the exciting research you have been undertaking and are thrilled about the opportunity you have to share it with the university and community at large.
