Graduate Student Symposium

The Odum School Graduate Student Symposium (GSS) is a chance to hear the latest research from the graduate student community and posters by undergrad researchers in the Odum School. It is an interdisciplinary conference including students from the Integrative Conservation program (ICON) and Interdisciplinary Disease Ecology Across Scales (IDEAS). This great event gives students the chance to present their research to the Odum community.

The 2017 GSS took place on January 27th and 28th. Award winners are listed below. See photos here!
