When: Registration and Kickoff will take place March 28 from 8 a.m.-5 p.m., with the conference taking place on Thursday, March 29, beginning at 8 a.m. The event will culminate with events on Friday, including a showcase and closing ceremony.

Why: Bolland said attending the conference exposes the UA community to what undergraduates are doing and shows students who aren't involved yet what they can do.
“The Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity Conference and Creative Showcase offers the University of Alabama community an opportunity to recognize student leaders through their innovative scholarship,” Bolland said.
