Honors students have the possibility to take part in two separate symposia: one held each spring either at Stanford or Berkeley, and one here at LPC.
HONORS RESEARCH SYMPOSIUM AT STANFORD UNIVERSITY: MAY 2, 2015
On May 2nd, 2015, the eighth annual Bay Honors Consortium Symposium celebrating the year's best community college honors research will be at Stanford University. It is an all-day event that brings together outstanding community college honors students from all over California to present their research. All students who are in the LPC Honors Transfer Program are eligible to send in proposals and to attend the event. The proposals do not have to have been an honors contract or part of the work for an honors course; it may be any research you are interested in pursuing. The types of projects vary. You must work with a faculty mentor, but if you cannot find one, Dr. Klaschus can act as your advisor for the project.
January 20th, 2015: The Stanford Symposium website is now open for proposals. Go to www.losmedanos.edu/honors/research. Click on "Presenting at the Symposium." There are boxes to check for directions on writing the proposal, and sample proposals. The due date for submissions is midnight on February 14th 2015. If you intend to submit a proposal for the Stanford symposium, or are interested in more information, you need to meet with the honors director, Dr. Klaschus.You can email her or drop by 2174. My spring office hours are at the left.
The registration site for the Stanford symposium will be open soon. A $25 registation fee is required of all attendees, including presenters. Details will be on the registration page.
