Students wanting to participate in Randolph’s Symposium of Artists and Scholars have a little more time to get their proposals in! The deadline to apply has been extended until Wednesday at 11:59 p.m.
The symposium, scheduled for April 23 and 24, offers students a chance to showcase their research, senior capstone projects, class projects, academic trips, and other creations to the community.
The two-day event includes a luncheon with a keynote speaker, oral presentations, performances, readings of creative work, poster presentations, and exhibitions of student art.
Papers, performances, and readings are limited to 12 minutes in length, with an additional three for questions, and posters should fit onto bulletin boards that are at maximum 4 feet tall and 6 feet wide (the Center for Student Research provides boards and easels). Visual works, such as artwork, will be displayed as appropriate.
Each submission requires an abstract summarizing the work, written in layman’s terms and not just for specialists in a particular field. The abstracts will be published online and printed in the program that will be distributed during the symposium.
Faculty nominations also are encouraged and can be submitted by emailing email@example.com. Students can apply without a nomination but still need to find a faculty sponsor to approve their participation.
Proposals will be reviewed and edited by members of the Student Scholarship Committee, with edits and acceptances announced after spring break.
Proposals are due by 11:59 p.m. Wednesday. The submission form and more information can be found at https://www.randolphcollege.edu/research/sas/sas-about.
