Armstrong Student Scholars Symposium is April 15

(April 6, 2011) The 17th annual Student Scholars Symposium on April 15 will serve as a forum for students to showcase original academic contributions to their discipline.

The symposium, to be held in the Student Union starting at 10 a.m., is open to graduate and undergraduate students across all disciplines. It presents an opportunity for student scholars to display original work – whether it be a chemistry poster presentation or a musical performance – and share their findings and achievements with other students, faculty and the larger community.

“We want this to be open to all students because we understand that every discipline has its own idea of what a scholar is,” said Scott Mateer, assistant professor of biology, who is coordinating the symposium. “This is an opportunity for students to show off and share their original contributions with their peers. It is also a great time for members of the larger community around Savannah to learn about the high quality of academic and original work being produced by Armstrong students.”

A symposium website has been established for students to submit abstracts and obtain additional information about the event. The site also includes a video clip featuring past student presenters.

A panel of faculty and staff will judge all entries on symposium day. Judging will be categorized under the four different colleges – education, health professions, liberal arts and science and technology, as well as graduate and undergraduate levels.
