Scholars Day is an opportunity for the entire Wesley College community to come together and celebrate scholarly endeavors. This day consists of presentations and performances that demonstrate scholarly achievements and research by students. The program is attended by peers of the participating students as well as faculty, staff, family members of the presenters and the public. Watch this video to learn more.
Scholars Day 2020 will take place on Thursday, April 18, 2020. Deadline for Scholars Day applications is February 28, 2020. Visit this link for the program book for Scholars Day 2018. The abstract booklet is available here.
Students can participate in a number of ways:
- Oral Presentations
- Poster Presentations
- Artwork (Photography Exhibits, Paintings, Drawings, etc.)
- Recitations (Poetry, Short Stories, etc.)
Due to the popularity of this annual event with students, different segments of presentations are being held simultaneously in different venues on campus. Audience members are invited to choose among the different presentations to see multiple student presentations on various topics. Student research and papers can vary from studies in Biology, Business, Chemistry, English, Environmental Studies, History, Kinesiology, Legal Studies, Masters of Occupational Therapy, Mathematics, Media Arts, Nursing, Philosophy, Political Science, Psychology, and Religion to an audio documentary and performances by the Wesley Chamber Choir and Wesley Contemporary Ensemble.
Throughout the day, poster presentations are displayed in the College Center Lobby and portico. The posters reflect various scientific research topics and the results of other student discipline studies. During the poster session the student presenters interact and answer questions from members of the campus community and other attendees.
After the final session of presentations, a reception is held for students involved, their families and faculty mentors. The reception includes a brief program to applaud the students for their hard work and scholarly achievements on Scholars Day.
