Attend Showcase Day

Showcase Day is an excellent opportunity to engage with your peers and learn about the exceptional work happening across campus. Join us from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday, April 30, 2024, on the Uptown Campus. Register to attend.

Most students will have class assignments that involve attending certain Showcase events and completing assignments that connect class concepts with the presentations. The Minerva Center for High Impact Learning offers guidance on reading a research poster and interacting with its author(s).

There will also be opportunities for students to volunteer on the day of Showcase.

Student Testimonials from Showcase 2023

“When I think back to my experience participating in last year's Showcase, I get an overwhelming sense of pride. It was a day where I was finally able to share the things that I typically geek out about in private with peers and professionals who had a genuine interest in my research, while overcoming my own personal fears associated with public speaking.” — Andrew Nicolella ’23 

"Immersed in diverse historical projects and engaging with fellow scholars, I gained profound insights into various historical perspectives. Witnessing the depth of creativity and dedication among participants, I truly enjoyed the event. The collaborative atmosphere and thought-provoking discussions would be one of the most valuable things you can expect." — Minseok Jang, PhD Candidate, Department of History
