First held in February 1999, Symposium has grown into a treasured University of Maine Farmington tradition. Each spring, the university community takes a day off from classes and normal routines to share in the exciting work of students.

Symposium is organized by the University Culture Committee.

Students may pursue independent research projects, share creative work, or be assigned a project as part of a course. All daytime classes are canceled on Symposium Day with the exception of afternoon once-a-week courses, which may be scheduled at the discretion of the instructor.
