If you haven’t seen one of the many posters around campus, SCHOLAR Day is this Tuesday, April 19. SCHOLAR Day is more than just a day off from classes (although I’m sure we all will appreciate the break!), it is a chance for the students of Mount Union to show off some of their best work; some which has taken months to put together.

Odds are that you know someone who is presenting either a poster or a presentation on SCHOLAR Day, however the schedule is divided up into several different parts and can be confusing at first. To help make sure you get the most out of your day this coming Tuesday, I’ve curated through the SCHOLAR Day resources and put them into a simple page for you:

  • The Main SCHOLAR Day Page contains all information about the day and it’s activities
  • 9-9:45 a.m. The first round of poster-presenters go. You can view all the names and posters here.
  • 10-11 a.m. The first presentations will begin. These presentations range from ones about cognitive and behavioral neuroscience to political science. All names and presentation descriptions can be viewed here.
  • 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. The Senior Recognition and Honors’ Convocation will take place in the Mount Union Theatre.
  • 12:30-1:30 p.m. No presentations or posters are being shown, as this time is blocked out to let the participants have lunch.
  • 1:30-2:30 p.m. The second round of presentations will begin. Refer to the aforementioned link to see the abstracts and details.
  • 2:30-3:15 p.m. The second round of poster presentations start.
  • 3:30-4:30 p.m. The day will be coming to a close with the third, and final, round of presentations being shown.

I encourage you all to take advantage of SCHOLAR Day and at least check out two or three of the presentations / posters. Months of hard work by students you know will be on display and it is a great opportunity to learn something new. See you there!
