Nearly 90 Mount Holyoke seniors representing diverse fields in the arts, sciences, social sciences, and humanities will present their independent research projects at the second annual Senior Symposium on April 13. The event will take place from 10 am to 6 pm in various lecture halls in the Science Center.
Each student will have 15 minutes to present a summary of her work and to field questions from the audience. Last year's inaugural event was a big success, drawing standing-room-only crowds of family, friends, and faculty. The Weissman Center for Leadership and the Liberal Arts, in cooperation with other offices on campus, is organizing the program.
"This year's Senior Symposium builds on the energy, sophisticated presentations, and powerful evidence of community that emerged last spring during the first annual symposium," said Lois Brown, associate professor of English and director of the Weissman Center. "This year's presenters will demonstrate in such powerful ways for all of us the intensity of academic work and the sheer pleasure that comes from immersing oneself in a sustained and absorbing project."
All members of the Mount Holyoke College and Five College communities are invited to attend. Morning pastries, coffee, and afternoon appetizers will be served in the Kendade atrium.
