3 Rounds Beginning at 5:30pm – 6:30pm
Talley Student Center Ballroom
This event is open to all NC State undergraduate students, but will be most beneficial to freshman and sophomores interested in learning about undergraduate research. Be open to exploring disciplines that you may not previously have considered. Those who do not pre-register will be added on site, but may not be able to speak with the representative from the discipline that they prefer.
Have Your NC State ID available at check in
If you wish to attend the event and you miss the registration deadline, there will be on site registration for the event if space is available*, though you will need to check in by 5pm. Students who register onsite may not be able to be matched with their preferred choice of programs so we highly recommend you registering online by the deadline.
*based on capacity safety regulations for the Talley Ballroom
