What is S3?

S3 in NewsCenter!

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. The 17th Annual SDSU Student Symposium will be held in person at the Conrad Prebys Aztec Student Union.
