The Society of President's Scholars and Honors College are again joining forces to sponsor the Celebration of Quality, an interdisciplinary research symposium spotlighting exceptional student work throughout campus. It is open to all Missouri Academy, undergraduate and graduate students at Northwest and may include work completed either this trimester or any time during the previous year. This is a great opportunity for students to share their best work with the Northwest community, and it makes an excellent addition to a resume. Students are invited to submit their work for the symposium by Friday, Feb. 13.
This year's symposium will be Friday, March 13, from 3 to 9:30 p.m. Sessions will take place before and after a banquet to which all Celebration participants and their faculty sponsors are invited; tickets may also be purchased for guests. In addition to more formal presentations, posters and artwork will be displayed in the banquet room.
The symposium gives the entire University community a chance to see what students are doing across disciplines, and it gives participating students an audience beyond the classroom. In the past, students have presented creative writing, original research and analytical papers. They have given speeches, conducted panel discussions, and displayed original works of art and visual summaries of their projects in science, education and business. They also have presented dramatic readings and played or analyzed music, and some have presented other original work or projects completed in class or during internships.
Students who choose to participate will receive a program in advance of the event with a specific presentation time and location. Class on Friday? We'll arrange with your instructor to have your absence excused for a University event.
