The University of Richmond School of Arts & Sciences will host the 29th annual Student Symposium, April 11, 1–6 p.m., at the Modlin Center for the Arts and Gottwald Science Center.   

The event celebrates student and faculty dedication to research and creative arts. Students will showcase projects from 30 disciplines across the arts, social sciences, humanities, leadership, business and sciences.

More than 200 student presenters have participated in an independent research experience under the mentorship of a faculty member and will share their discoveries in oral presentations, posters, exhibits and performances. This year’s presentations include “Slave Songs of Virginia,” “Atomic Force Microscopy” and “How Expecting a Cell Phone Notification Impacts Attention.”

The symposium allows students to present their work in a professional setting with an opportunity for the entire campus community to learn about their achievements. Awards will be given to the best student papers and most outstanding projects in the creative arts.
