At this ninth annual Ogden Honors Undergraduate Research Colloquium, Ogden Honors students will present both completed Honors Thesis projects, and research in progress. Presentations are open to the LSU community and the general public, and we encourage students to invite their family and friends. 

No matter your year at LSU or your stage in the Honors Thesis research process, you will find the Colloquium is an excellent opportunity to learn more about the work of your fellow Ogden Honors students, and to explore ways of approaching the Honors Thesis. This event provides an opportunity for Ogden students to share what they've learned, foster interdisciplinary dialogue, and network with faculty members.
