Baylor students from across the university are gearing up for Scholars Week, an annual celebration of undergraduate scholarship presented April 8-11 by the Undergraduate Research and Scholarly Achievement Steering Committee.
Over 150 students are slated to present the results of their independent research projects during the event with paper presentations and poster sessions covering a variety of topics ranging from traditional science disciplines to social sciences, humanities and the arts.
Scholars Week kicks off with an opening reception on Monday, April 8 at 12:30 p.m. in the Bill Daniel Student Center’s Barfield Drawing Room. Paper presentations take place on April 8 and 9 at 2:00 and 3:30 p.m. in second-floor meeting rooms in the BDSC.
The second half of Scholars Week will take place in the Baylor Sciences Building with poster sessions on April 10 and 11. Posters will be on display throughout both days, with student researchers on hand at various times to discuss their work with attendees.
All Scholars Week events are free and open to the public. Click the flyer above for more information, or visit the URSA website for a full schedule of Scholars Week events.
New this year: Twitter photo contest for students
To encourage our students to spread the word about the great research on display at Scholars Week, URSA is sponsoring a photo contest on Twitter. Students are asked to tweet pictures from Scholars Week using the hashtag #URSAScholarsWeek. URSA will award a prize to the student who takes the best picture during the event.
Faculty, please encourage your students to attend Scholars Week and tweet pictures of their favorite research!
