Celebrating Undergraduate Excellence (CUE) is an annual showcase for OSU undergraduates to present their research, scholarship and creative projects to the broader university and Corvallis community.
Undergraduates from all academic disciplines, in all years of study and all stages of research will present a diversity of topics, approaches and interests at OSU.
Thank you for your interest in presenting at Celebrating Undergraduate Excellence (CUE) 2021! Due to changes in campus operations, and with respect for our continued need to remain socially distant, CUE will be offered as a virtual symposium. Even with this change, students will have the opportunity to share their research to the broader OSU community and receive questions and comments about their work.
This year, each student will record a 3-minute lightning talk and post it on a central Canvas page where the symposium will be hosted. Lightning talks should be made in PowerPoint. If you do not already have PowerPoint, follow the directions to download a free copy through OSU’s license. Christy and URSA Ambassadors from the Office of Undergraduate Research, Scholarship, and the Arts (URSA) will be hosting an optional lightning talk workshop on Monday, May 10 from 5-6 p.m., and an optional lightning talk help session on Thursday, May 13 from 5-6p.m. Here are the links to join the May 10 workshop and the May 13 help session.
Non-presenters: To virtually attend CUE and to ensure that you have full access to the Canvas site, you will need to RSVP by May 23. Due to limitations within Canvas, this event will only be accessible to CUE student presenters, OSU faculty, staff, and non-CUE students. OSU community members who registered will be added to the Canvas course on May 27. Please check your email or login to Canvas to accept an invitation to the CUE “course”. In Canvas, you will be able to view presenters’ recordings, ask questions, and engage in dialogue via the Canvas discussion board function. CUE students do not have to register to attend this event.
