Landmark Summer Research Conference

Landmark Summer Research Symposium Poster Presentation Susquehanna University participates in the annual Landmark Conference Summer Research Symposium, which provides a wonderful opportunity for Susquehanna students and faculty to share research projects with counterparts from other Landmark institutions. The university is among eight institutions competing in the athletic conference.

In 2012, four conference schools participated: Goucher College, Juniata College, Moravian College and Susquehanna University. Susquehanna was represented by 16 students from the departments of mathematics and computer science, chemistry, biology, physics, and earth and environmental sciences.
