IR Honors Conference 
Support your fellow concentrators!

Wednesday, May 3 | 4:00-6:00pm
Joukowsky Forum, Watson Institute

Don't miss the IR Honors Conference where your fellow concentrators present their projects! The seniors in the Honors program present their theses, the results of a year's worth of research, analysis, writing, and editing. This is a great way to gain a deeper understanding of what an IR thesis entails, especially if you're interested in taking on the task in the future. It is also a wonderful opportunity to learn a lot about some very interesting, current, IR-related topics. All are invited to attend, regardless of grade level or concentration.
