Academic Excellence Celebration

Academic Celebration

Please mark your calendars and plan to join us in a celebration of our students' achievements on Friday, April 27. The day includes a Poster/Project/Artwork Session in the Sarazen Student Union from 12:30 p.m. - 1:30 p.m., and a host of honor society inductions and award ceremonies at various locations on campus from 2 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. A link to the detailed Schedule of Events can be found below.


  • The poster/project/artwork session runs from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.
  • Students should be available at their table between 12:35 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. (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 2 p.m.. Students must return by 2 p.m. to pick up their projects, or make special arrangements in advance.

On-Line Registration:

Students must register for The Poster/Project/Artwork Session by filling out an on-line application ( and submitting it electronically no later than Wednesday, March 28th, to reserve space at the event, and to be included in the program booklet. Faculty members may use this same form if submitting on the student's behalf. 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 (No more than 120 words.)

Deadline for applications:  Wednesday, March 28th. Confirmation e-mails will be sent to all applicants by Friday, March 30th.


Students MUST set-up their poster/project between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. on Friday, April 27. 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 mounted 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 Elizabeth Ives at or 782-5845.


Most honor society induction ceremonies will take place between 2 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. at various campus locations. The Schedule of Events is coming soon. Some students may be inducted into more than one honor society, and times may overlap. If this situation occurs, the student will have to choose which one to attend, especially if the inductions run at the same time.

Each faculty member who is responsible for an honor society needs to ensure his/her production of the society's brochure or handout for that day.

Please plan to join us for this annual celebration of student and faculty achievement!
