Academic Contests

Yearly, Global Campus students participate and compete in two WSU-wide academic contests—the Showcase for Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities (SURCA) and the Global Case Competition.  Both events allow students to present their work remotely or in Pullman, WA. By participating in these competitions students have the chance to add unique experiences to their resume, earn scholarship money, and win awards.
