As spring takes over campus, so too does a flowering of students’ academic and intellectual pursuits, many of which 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 gives students an opportunity to show off what they have been working on for the past academic year.
Students do so in one of three ways: giving a presentation during a paper session, designing a poster to be displayed in the Norton Center for the Arts foyer, or by displaying creative work in a gallery, exhibition or live performance in a studio setting.
All students featured in RICE must complete registration and submit an abstract to be considered, giving them valuable experience with symposia, public speaking and presenting creative and academic work.
This is the symposium’s seventh year, marking its growth from an innovative idea to a treasured campus tradition and hallmark in the life of the College.
The symposium is sponsored by the dean of the College, associate dean of the College and a grant from Dr. John Barton ’79, a Centre trustee. The 2014 RICE symposium will be held April 10 – 11 on Centre’s campus; posters and presentations will occur on Thursday, April 10 and an art exhibition will be held in the AEGON gallery inside the Jones Visual Arts Center on Friday, April 11.
