The LSU Honors College proudly presents the annual Undergraduate Research Colloquium. This event is the culmination of the Honors Research Series and provides a venue for the dissemination of scholarship and an opportunity to engage in an interdisciplinary discussion with our distinguished seniors. 

Presentations of senior Honors Thesis Projects will be held in the French House Grand Salon.  Posters will also be on display in the French House Café that will cover a range of topics and research at varying stages of completion from Honors students of all year classifications.
