Zyzzogeton event highlights student achievement
Augsburg College will celebrate the creativity and scholarship of undergraduate students on April 19 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the eighth annual Zyzzogeton Research Festival.
Held in Oren Gateway Center, the festival falls at the end of each academic year and is a culmination of achievement featuring work across divisions and departments.
This year, more than 80 students will present their research to the Augsburg community during a poster session. Zyzzogeton is an opportunity to hear about the exciting scholarship happening on campus and refreshments will be served throughout the event.
Zyzzogeton is sponsored by the McNair Scholars Program, Office of Undergraduate Research and Graduate Opportunity (URGO), and the Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) programs. Visit the URGO website to read students' poster session abstracts.
Augsburg's Zyzzogeton celebration is the oldest festival of its kind in the United States. A "zyzzogeton" is a green leaf-hopper as well as one of the last words in the Webster Collegiate Dictionary, a fitting symbol to mark the end of the academic year.
