Student Research at SUNY Oneonta - A Summary

Student Research & Creative Activity Day

The annual Student Research & Creative Activity (SRCA) Day, sponsored by the Committee on Research, the Grants Development Office, and the College at Oneonta Foundation, Inc., offers a professional venue in which students present their research and creative activity projects (whether funded by the Student Grant Program or not; however, grant recipients are required to present at a SRCA Day). Work is displayed in a variety of formats including poster, computer display and other exhibits. Supplies, visual equipment, and other support are provided to create displays. The event includes a keynote address by a distinguished SUNY Oneonta alumnus.

The 2015 Student Research & Creative Activity Day, held on April 16, featured 124 presentations representing 160 student participants sponsored by 71 different faculty mentors.
