Oral Presentations at SOURCE are grouped together into blocks of three to four related talks. Faculty or students may speak about various types of research projects, including work completed as part of their senior seminar or master's programs. They may present descriptive, correlational, or experimental research; independent studies; or creative capstone projects. Powerpoint or Prezi presentations typically accompany these fifteen-minute talks.

Below you can find abstracts describing 2015's Oral Presentations. All presentations are held at the Student Union and Recreation Center--noted as SURC in the schedule.
