About the Student Research and Creative Activities Symposium

PLEASE NOTE: Northeastern Illinois University has cancelled all campus events with 50 or more anticipated attendants for the duration of the spring semester. We regret that this cancellation applies to the Symposium scheduled for Friday, April 17

We understand this comes as a disappointment, and we are looking into rescheduling the event in the fall semester. If you have already submitted an entry for the Symposium, we will review your submission and contact you for the event as soon as it is rescheduled.
