Student Research Day

SUNY Old Westbury hosts an annual Student Research Day each spring. Through oral, poster, media and art presentations or exhibits, students showcase the results of their research and creativity. These academic and artistic achievements represent the effort of in-class assignments and out-of-class experiences conducted with faculty. More than 100 students participate in Student Research Day each year.  Research Day is sponsored by the School of Arts and Sciences, the School of Education and the School of Business.
