    You can also watch this space for a link to the 2020 Post-Submission Packet.  The link will take you to a Google Drive folder that can be accessed by anybody with a Rowan network account.  If you are unable to access the Packet, try logging out of Google Drive and then logging back in with your Rowan network credentials.

    (Use your Rowan University username and password to access)
  • Early drop-off of posters:  In previous years, students have had the option of dropping off their posters for the Symposium at the Eynon Ballroom prior to the Symposium.  Dates and times for early poster drop-off will be posted in this space.  
    • Your poster should be rolled.
    • Please have your poster number on the roll so that we can keep the posters organized for later pick-up.  (Need to find your poster number?  Look for it in the program booklet!)
    • If you are dropping off multiple posters, please do not roll posters together if they are scheduled for different sessions.

  • Parking:  If you are coming to the RU Student Scholars Symposium and you don't normally attend or work at the Glassboro campus, Rowan University's Office of Public Safety recommends that you park in Lot C. Click here for a map of the Glassboro campus.
  • Is your organization planning to have an exhibit table at RUSSS?  Each year, RUSSS receives requests from student groups and University offices to have an exhibit table at the event.  We are asking that all such requests be submitted via this Google form.  The form is set up to only receive requests from people who are logged into Google with their Rowan email address.  If you are unable to access the form, try logging out of Google and then logging back in with your Rowan username and password.   
    • DEADLINE FOR REQUESTS: noon, Wed. March 11th.
    • Requests will be granted to University offices, SGA recognized organizations, and organizations currently petitioning for SGA recognition.  Requests will be granted based on space availability at the Symposium as our priority must be to provide space for Symposium presentations.  
    • Please note that the Google form is only for requests by organizations to have an exhibit table at the Symposium.  Symposium presenters who need a demonstration table in addition to a poster display board should indicate this when they submit their RUSSS abstract.
