Students Shine

April 20, 2012

Among my favorite days in the academic year is the one we call Symposium Day, which took place on April 18. It very much resembles the professional conferences that I have attended as a psychologist. Here at Saint Joseph College, it is the students who are both presenters and audience. True to an age-old academic tradition, they have the opportunity to profess what they have learned through study and research. From talks on ancient Greek sculpture and architecture to the use of photographic representations of the Muslim diaspora, the students informed and inspired one another. I must admit to sharing in the well-deserved pride that faculty mentors felt as they listened to their protégés discuss background research and explain scientific terminology. The confidence and excitement each student had developed for her discipline and the topic of her research truly shone through.
