What is S3?

The Symposium is a two-day event, occurring each spring semester that is a showcase of SDSU student discovery, innovation, and creativity. The SDSU Student Symposium, or S3, is a public forum where students at all levels have the opportunity to present their research, scholarship, and creative activities to the SDSU and San Diego communities. The SDSU Student Symposium is a great way to learn about all the incredible projects that our undergraduate and graduate students are working on under the direction of their faculty mentors.
