MARQUETTE – Northern Michigan University will host a “Celebration of Student Research and Creative Works” from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday, April 5, in the Explorer Rooms of the University Center. It will showcase the accomplishments of more than 100 students through posters of scientific presentations, podium presentations, dramatic readings and – for the first time – Microsoft PowerPoint presentations via student notebook computers.
The event will kick off with an opening ceremony featuring President Les Wong and Provost and Vice-President of Academic Affairs Fred Joyal.
“We put on this event to celebrate the research efforts and scholarly activities of our students,” said Cynthia Prosen, dean of graduate studies at NMU. “We want to make a big deal out of what they’ve done as a reinforcement for all of their hard work and to show them that it pays off.”
The general public is invited to this event free of charge. For more information, contact Prosen at 227-2941.
