What You Need To Know

Celebration 2015
An Interdisciplinary Academic Symposium

3-9:30 p.m., Friday, March 13
3rd Floor, J.W. Jones Student Union


Celebration of Quality Call for Papers (and other Projects)

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. 20.

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. 

Please address any questions to Dr. Elyssa Ford (ebford@nwmissouri.edu), Dr. Mohammed Meziani (meziani@nwmissouri.edu) or Dr. Aaron Johnson at (AJ@nwmissouri.edu).

Thank you,

Kara Huen, President of the Society of President’s Scholars
Elyssa Ford and Mohammed Meziani, Sponsors of the Society of President’s Scholars
Aaron Johnson, Director of the Honors Program


Registration is closed.

Here's why you should participate:

  1. You will get an opportunity to hear people ooh, aah, clap, smile, and generally respond positively to your work.
  2. You can list your participation on your resume. This type of involvement looks great to potential employers.
  3. You will impress your family and friends.
  4. You will be even prouder of your work than you are now, truly believing all your hard work did pay off.
  5. And, you will get a free dinner!

Here’s what you need to do to participate:

  1. After you find a faculty member to be your sponsor, fill out the application form. (Faculty are quite happy to do this, and it doesn’t have to be the teacher for whom you completed your work.)
  2. If you are presenting with other students who worked on the same project, please put all of your names on a single form. If you and a friend want to present different projects but at the same session, please submit separate forms and indicate your preference to present at the same time.
  3. Submit the form.

We look forward to seeing you and your work!
