Georgia Southwestern also offers students the ability to conduct research during their studies. The Undergraduate Research Symposium gives students the opportunity to showcase their efforts presented through academic posters, oral presentations, and other project mediums. 

The Department of Mathematics advises undergraduate students conducting research in the area providing mentorship and guidance throughout the process. 

Undergraduate Research Symposium

Every year since 1974, the Department of Mathematics at Georgia Southwestern has hosted a tournament for high school students from throughout the state. This tournament has brought hundreds of students to the campus in the early spring each year to compete with one another. The longest running math tournament in Georgia, the annual GSW competition has served as a model for a host of imitators. Teachers from across the state would select a minimum of four and a maximum of eight outstanding mathematics students from each school to participate. (Extra students are welcome to participate and enjoy the tournament, but only the team-of-eight will contribute to the official score for the school's team.) 

Individuals who are home schooled are also welcome to compete in the individual part of the tournament. Parents of interested home schooled students may contact to register for the tournament.

The GSW Math Club is an organization whose primary goal is to help make mathematics accessible to the student body. Membership is open to all mathematics and mathematics/educations majors, as well as those individuals with an interest in mathematics. The Math Club serves as a sponsor for student/faculty seminars and participates in math tournaments at GSW.
