Legacy Symposium deadline nearing
As the spring semester begins, the Legacy Symposium committee is encouraging students to mark their calendars for the third annual Loras College Legacy Symposium on Wednesday, April 27, 2016.
Started as part of the college’s 175 year anniversary, this event is an opportunity for students and faculty to share their scholarly accomplishments with the Duhawk community. Classes are canceled for the entire day on Wednesday, allowing all students, faculty, and staff, to attend presentations, view posters, and experience the creativity in the Loras College community.
The symposium encourages students to present their research, creative projects, service trips, and honors projects they have worked on over the past year or fall semester. Starting this year, the symposium is including internship presentations as an option. Any type of presentation, from creative writing recitations, to musical performances, to study abroad presentations are welcome. The 2016 Student Awards Luncheon will take place at the symposium, as well as a film festival at nighttime.
There are many formats available to present in, including posters, oral presentations, and creative displays, and all majors and years are welcome to present work at the symposium.
The deadline to submit work to the committee for review is Wednesday, Feb. 24. To submit work, go to www.loras.edu/legacysymposium, follow the links at the bottom of the page, and fill out the form. Submissions will be selected and presenters will be notified within the next few weeks. Any questions regarding submissions can be sent to Legacy.Symposium@loras.edu.
