The Department of Biology has been proud to showcase our undergraduates’ research at the John Koeppe Undergraduate Honors Research Symposium since 1985.

This symposium is held twice a year – in early November during the fall semester and in early April during the spring semester. BIOL 692H students give an oral presentation/defense of their research for their Senior Honors Thesis in Biology. Biology majors/2nd majors may choose to do their senior honors thesis in either the fall or spring semester of their senior year. Dr Amy Shaub Maddox ( is our Biology Honors Director.

The Fall 2021 Koeppe Symposium will be held Tuesday, November 2, 2021 in Coker 215.
