This conference provides an opportunity for undergraduate students to practice presenting and network with other undergraduate students and professors.

Network with undergraduate students interested in philosophy, economics, and happiness, and network with graduate students and professors to learn about graduate school and different fields of study.

Registration is free. RSVP via Facebook, or send an e-mail to gmuphilosophyconference@gmail.com.
