URSCA Fall Gala

Tuesday, Dec. 15, 2020 - Virtual 

An annual fall showcase event to celebrate undergraduate research, scholarly, and creative activity at UWRF. All disciplines are invited to present their work through research posters, oral presentations, artwork, short films and interactive research displays. All of the UWRF campus including their families, alumni and community members are invited to attend and engage with the undergraduate research, scholarly, and creative activity that is happening at UWRF. This family-friendly event is free and open to the public.

This year we are doing our part to keep our campus safe and go virtual! The Fall Gala this year will be taking place on Microsoft Teams. Before the Fall Gala, students will be submitting a video presentation for viewers to see. During the night of the Fall Gala, students will be grouped into different channels where they will be able to share and further discuss their projects. Attendees will be able to join these different channels and engage with student presenters with any comments or questions they may have about a particular project. 

We hope to mimic features of the in-person gala and make it as exciting as our previous years!
