Villanova University Chapter (#288)


  • News highlight: Villanova's Sigma Xi Chapter earns chapter of Excellence Award for distinguished performance during the year ending June 30, 2012!

  • The 2014 Sigma Xi Student Research Poster Symposium will be held on Friday, April 25, 2014. Last year's event included presentations from over 60 students and we hope to have that many (or more) participants this year, across a range of disciplines. We are also pleased to announce that this year's keynote address will be presented by Dr. Nat Nataraj, the 2013 recipient of the Outstanding Faculty Research Award.

    Students participating in the poster symposium are required to submit a short abstract of their research by 5:00 pm on Monday, April 14. Details on abstract submission are available here.
