During their last year before graduation, students are required to create a thesis poster (32”x 40”) in accordance with Honors Poster instructions and participate in the Honors thesis poster session, usually held in March. Not all students will have completed their thesis or have defended prior to the poster session, so posters may represent completed work or projects still in the final stages. The poster session provides an opportunity for students to share their research with the broader Honors community in an informal, reception-type setting – complete with refreshments and more. Other students, staff, faculty and university administrators browse through the displays, and get to interact with the presenters to learn more about the projects represented. The thesis posters are retained by the Honors Program for a rotating display in the Honors Commons (first floor of the Maeser Building) for the following year.
