Student Undergraduate Research Festival

2022 Student Undergraduate Research Festival (SURF)

SURF will be held this year on Friday, April 29, 2022 in the Carroll College Campus Center. The Student Undergraduate Research Festival (SURF) is a celebration of the research done by Carroll College students. The event occurs every April, and everyone is invited to attend. SURF is seen as the highlight of the year for all of the students doing research, and it is a wonderful opportunity for other Carroll students, Carroll faculty and staff members, and community members to see the amazing work done by our students.

NOTE TO PRESENTERS: If you submitted a SURF poster and did not receive an email that it is ready to pick up at the Saints’ Shoppe, please stop in the store no later than noon, Thursday, April 28, and speak with Sheri and Justin to get your poster printed!

Our students are very excited to share their research during this time of student-driven, inquiry-oriented learning.
