What Students are Saying About Other Pi Sigma Alpha Conferences!

"By attending the Pi Sigma Alpha undergraduate conference, I had the opportunity to receive feedback on my presentation that was extremely helpful and valuable to me as I continue to conduct research. Perhaps the most valuable experience was listening and talking to other presenters. I can bring the information I learned at this conference back to my home university to help our students learn more about the field of political science as well as the importance of undergraduate research and scholarship."

Greta Frost, Youngstown State University

"The Pi Sigma Alpha undergraduate conference is a great way to gain the experience you need by presenting your own research before you enter graduate school, and in the nations capital no less! Listening to other undergrads present their research was a very fulfilling, enlightening, and rewarding experience and no other undergraduate conference does it like Pi Sigma Alpha."
