A Grand Valley tradition, Student Scholars Day will be on Wednesday April 9, 2014. This annual event celebrates the scholarship and creativity of GVSU students. Student Scholars Day showcases faculty-mentored student work and research. This research can be creative work projects or traditional research. Projects may be initiated as part of a course or independent collaborations with faculty.
Students in all SoC majors are encouraged to submit their work. Class projects such as Ad/PR campaign books, journalistic writing, photography, films, or research papers are eligible. SoC students are urged to begin these projects or polish up old work. Also, students should talk to professors about work that they can enter together.
More than 400 presentations by more than 600 students will be showcased. Students who have enhanced their professional development by engaging in scholarly and creative work are encouraged to share their work with the community.
“We haven’t had a lot of representation from the School of Communications in past years,” said Tony Thompson, Director of the School of Communications. “We know our students do very good work and would like them to share it with the broader university community.”
