Visit the 2022 Senior Research Symposium Page

We are thrilled to be moving ahead with plans for a 2022 Senior Research Symposium with both virtual and in-person elements! Please join us to celebrate Wooster seniors and their Independent Study projects on Friday, April 29, 2022!   

In-Person Symposium Activities:

From 8am-4pm (Eastern Daylight Time; UTC -4), in-person poster presentations, as well as live oral presentations, demonstrations, installations, and performances will run throughout the day throughout Scot Center and a Live Stage in Gault Recital Hall inside Scheide Music Center, where you can see presentations in person or virtually.  From 4-6pm, Senior Studio Art Show opens in the College of Wooster Art Museum with short artist talks by each student. We will follow campus and public health guidance, but anticipate that masks will be optional.  

Also, tune in to our Live Stage throughout the day for livestreamed “lightning talks,” student performances, and project demonstrations hosted by faculty, staff & alumni! 

Online Engagement:

Seniors’ personal webpages with digital presentations of their work will go live on April 28 (the day before Senior Research Symposium) so the chats with friends & family can start that evening, as well as all day on April 29. Use the chat feature to share comments and pose questions.  The chats will close at midnight, but the webpages will stay live so you can return—and/or send other friends, family, and supporters to check them out!  Recent graduates have also found these webpages to be helpful in their job searches, added the link to their resume and have been sharing their work far & wide.   

Last year, 6,000 visitors from 96 countries joined us to support nearly 200 students who showcased their work digitally. Visitors logged over 30,000 unique page views and left 8,000 comments and questions on individual student’s pages.  This year, students plan to participate in person and virtually and we’re counting on you to help make this experience meaningful and memorable for our seniors!
