URSCA, year two. Congratulations and thank you!

For the second consecutive year, UW-Green Bay hosted the 18th annual UW System Symposium for Undergraduate Research, Scholarly and Creative Activity (URSCA) on Friday, April 26, 2019. This event, which rotates between the UW System campuses, had more than 400 students in attendance from across the UW System. The attendance of UW-Green Bay community members, family members of the researchers, faculty from other UW campuses and UW System officials added to the exciting atmosphere of the event. There was 263 presentations of research including poster presentations, gallery exhibits, visuals, and artistic and oral performances in all disciplines from natural science, biology, and technology, to social science and history.

Organizers wish to thank all the volunteers who contributed to the well-run event including the UW-Green Bay Ambassadors, faculty and staff. Much appreciation to the Kress Events Center and University Union staff. A very special thank you to Teri Ternes, Claire Carviou and Emily Wolf for assisting in the organization of this event. The next UW Undergraduate Research Symposiums will be hosted by UW-Whitewater in 2020 and 2021.

URSCA? ‘Couldn’t have gone much better’

According to organizers, the UW Undergraduate Research Symposium (URSCA), Thursday and Friday, April 19-20, 2018, couldn’t have gone much better. UW-Green Bay was busting at the seams with an additional 400 undergraduate researchers, faculty from other UW campuses and UW System officials. Unexpected (but welcome) were a number of parents and family members who sat in on presentations and enjoyed the poster session.

Organizers send appreciation to staff of the University Union and the Kress Events Center, and those who served as moderators for the presentations, many of whom were “blown away by the presentations.” The tour of Lambeau, UntitledTown collaboration and an app were big hits, as was having the art in the same room as the poster session.

UW-Green Bay looks to hosting a bigger and better event in 2019, before the event moves to another campus in 2020. Good job, UW-Green Bay!
