Mark Your Calendars—SOURCE is Friday, April 12, 2024!

SOURCE is a student conference held at St. Edward's University every spring. It provides opportunities for students to share their work, creative and academic, with peers, faculty, university administration, and guests. The all-day event includes several oral presentation sessions with various time formats and a poster session that includes lunch. To be considered for the event, students must have a sponsoring faculty member, write and submit an abstract (up to 250 words), and choose the most appropriate format (oral presentation or poster session).

The event is free and open to the SEU community.


Preparing Your Presentation:

  • Consult your faculty advisor for advice about crafting your oral or poster presentation and handling the logistics involved (e.g., poster printing)
  • Posters should be printed as size 36x48 
  • Students delivering oral presentations will have up to 15 minutes for the presentation and 5 minutes for questions (for a total of 20 minutes per time slot)
  • Students should prepare a visual aid, typically a slide presentation made using PowerPoint or Google Slides
  • Students will receive additional emails from the SOURCE committee with instructions and scheduling details when those become available
