Centre College to host 9th annual RICE Symposium
As spring arrives on campus, students’ academic and intellectual pursuits blossom, and many will be showcased and celebrated at this year’s RICE symposium.
RICE stands for Research, Internships and Creative Endeavors and is a campus-wide event that allows students to show off contributions to their fields of interest from the past academic year.
Students can present their work in one of three ways. They may give a presentation during a paper session, design a poster to be displayed in the Norton Center for the Arts foyer, or they can display creative works in a gallery, exhibition or live performance in a studio setting.
The event is a unique opportunity for students to gain valuable experience with public speaking, symposia and presenting creative and academic work.
This is the ninth year of the symposium, which sparked from an innovative idea and has since become a treasured hallmark in the life of the College.
The 95 presentations from across the academic disciplines this year include 59 oral presentations, 35 poster presentations, three musical and dramatic performances, and an art exhibition.
The 2016 RICE symposium is sponsored by the dean’s office and all academic programs. It will take place on campus on Thursday, April 14.
