Academic Excellence Celebration

Friday, May 2nd, 2014


The Poster/Project/Artwork sessions will be held in the Sarazen Student Union, Maloney Great Room and SSU 241-243 from 12:30 PM to 6:00 PM on Friday, May 2nd.
Most Honor Society Inductions will take place in various locations on campus between 1:30 PM and 5:45 PM. Some students may be inducted into more than one Honor Society, and times may overlap. If this situation occurs, the students will have to choose which one to attend, especially if the inductions run at the same time.



The poster/project/artwork session will run from 12:30 PM to 6:00 PM. Students should be available at their poster/project between 12:35 PM and 1:35 PM (Free Period) to answer any questions that viewers may have. Students are encouraged to stay longer if they can, but they are not to disrupt their class schedules. The posters will be left up until 6:00 PM to allow family and friends to view these posters/projects as the various induction ceremonies occur. The students must return at 6:00 PM or shortly after to pick up their projects, or make special arrangements in advance.
Students/faculty members must register for The Poster/Project/Artwork Session by filling out an application and submitting it electronically by Wednesday, April 9th, to reserve space at the event, and to be included in the program booklet. The following information is needed:
1. Student Name(s)
2. Title of the Poster/Project/Art Work
3. Course
4. Faculty Supervisor Name(s)
5. A brief abstract explaining the poster/project. (Limited to 120 words).
The application is due no later than Wednesday, April 9th, but sooner is better! This deadline will ensure that we have time to produce and print the programs. Confirmation e-mails will be sent to all applicants.
SETUP: Students MUST set-up their poster/project between 9:00 AM and 11:00 AM on Friday, May 2nd. Staff will be present to help direct students to their assigned spaces.
Please note the following…
All projects will be displayed on tables and, therefore, must be submitted on a tri-fold stand-up poster board. Please DO NOT use a flat poster board because they will not stand up. Projects cannot be hung on the walls.
Students must supply their own laptop if their project requires one. Please let us know if a project requires a power supply, Internet  connection or a TV/VCR, so that we can set one up in advance. If a project has a unique set-up, please contact Lynn Rogers at or 782-6654 about special accommodations.
