Day of scholarship brought together Barton students and faculty to collaborate and share their research projects on April 11 across the college’s campus. From freshmen to seniors, all students were able to participate and present their ideas to Barton’s community.
The event started with an opening plenary featuring Barton graduates whose undergraduate research led them to post-graduate success. The plenary was followed by poster sessions presented by students.
Lastly, there were research sessions by individual students and faculty. Student projects were shown in the Kennedy Family Theatre, Nixon Nursing Building and Moye Science Hall.
It will be possible for people to view the poster presentations developed by students for several days in the Case Art Building. This is the fifth year Barton has hosted Day of Scholarship on campus.
Credit extends to the planning committee encompassed by faculty members Dr. Susan Bane, Dr. Gary Daynes, Dr. John Dogbe, Ms. Carolyn Harmon, Dr. Kevin Pennington and Dr. Jane Webster. According to Bane, she
encourages all bulldogs to participate on this special event. The earlier students start engaging with oral presentations the easier it will be for them to get involved with research presentations as the ones shown during this day, she said.
According to Sydney Turner, Barton sophomore and poster presenter, Day of Scholarship helps students to be involved with Barton’s activities as well as celebrating people’s effort put into these projects. If undergraduates wish to participate in future Day of Scholarship’s they must contact Bane and fill out an application form provided by the committee.
