High Point University undergraduate students from all schools, majors, and minors are invited to participate in HPU’s 8th annual Research and Creativity Symposium (High-PURCS). This event will showcase student scholarship in a supportive environment that models a professional venue.

Students may choose to present their work as a poster, oral presentation, brief performance, or exhibit. Projects must be mentored, independent work that reflect originality and creativity and be quality products that went beyond a course assignment.
