November 3, 2017

Sher Afghan AsadSher Afghan Asad, graduate student, is among the 43 competitors in the Graduate College’s Three-minute Thesis Event Monday, Nov. 6. The preliminary heat session #3, will take place in 2115 Pearson Hall, from 3:15 – 4:15 p.m.

Asad volunteered to share research plans/findings in a compelling way in language understandable to those from outside of the discipline. The presentation will be restricted to three minutes and may include only one static slide.

Members of the department can show support by attending the one-hour preliminary heat. You must arrive to the heat by 3:15 p.m., because access to the room will be prevented after the first speaker begins, and stay the entire hour to avoid disruptions. Heats will include either eight or nine speakers.

Top performers in the heats will be invited to the final round of competition in 2200 Marston Hall from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. The students selected for the final round will be announced in 2200 Marston at 4:45 p.m. The top three students, determined by a panel of judges from outside of the university, will be awarded prizes.
