HEAR FROM OUR PAST PRESENTERS:

"Presenting in front of an audience has always been a daunting task for me. The Peer Beyond Symposium was a great opportunity to gain more comfort with presentations and also practice keeping my audience engaged with my presentation. I was definitely challenged to pace myself and make eye contact with my audience in order to create excitement and enthusiasm for my research."

"Honestly, the greatest help is getting feedback from your peers and faculty members in attendance. I attended Peer Beyond during my MA and received a ton of feedback on my project - much of which went into enriching my proposal. Now, in my PhD, I am excited to attend again as it will be close to my candidacy exam, so the opportunity to practice speaking about my work will be very helpful! "
