Attend the Exhibition for Academic Success, April 17

By Purnell T. Cropper | April 1, 2014

Every year the Arcadia community is in awe of students’ endeavors in and out the classroom. However, often these efforts are confined to one particular classroom. With such exemplary work meriting a larger audience, a new event called the Exhibition for Academic Success has been created. The event will allow more people to learn from students’ scholarly efforts, appreciate their intellectual prowess and innovative problem solving abilities, and recognize the steadfast conscientious that is required to produce such professional work.

At the Exhibition for Academic Success, students will have the opportunity to share their work with employers, alumni, and the Arcadia community. Students can present research, projects, art or musical pieces, an interesting classroom experience, academic service learning, or a project they are working on outside the classroom, such as a community service project or an initiative for Orientation. The event is April 17 from 4 to 5:45 p.m. in the Commons Great Room.

The entire University community is invited to attend the event, which is being hosted by the Honors Program, the Academic Services Committee of the Student Government Organization, and The Compass, in order to support our students in their work. In addition, the Office of Career Education has invited employers to the event, and the Office of Alumni Relations has reached out to alumni.

“We would like this to become a thriving Arcadia tradition, and it needs a strong start for this to happen,” said Helene Klein, co-director of the Honors Program.
