Senior Symposium

The Third Annual Senior Symposium
Friday, April 27, 2012
Join us for the April 27 Senior Symposium, a campuswide celebration of the scholarly and artistic achievements of the Class of 2012. Opening remarks by Sean Decatur, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, begin at 1 p.m., in West Lecture Hall. Concurrent panels begin at 1:30 p.m., 2:45 p.m., and 4 p.m. The reception begins at 5 p.m. in the Academic Commons of the Science Center.

 

An electronic version of the program will be available on this site in mid-April, and a printed program will be available in West Lecture Hall on the afternoon of April 27.

Last year’s symposium featured 42 seniors on 14 panels, presenting their independent and collaborative work to the Oberlin community. Graduating seniors and fifth-years interested in participating in the 2012 symposium are invited to consult with their advisors and to submit an interest form, available here, by Wednesday, February 25. Final abstracts and biographies are due Wednesday, March 14. In addition to the events scheduled for the symposium itself, the program is to list other senior projects of note, including exhibits and recitals, taking place on other dates in the spring semester.
Departments may consider coordinating the symposium with existing programming of senior or honors presentations, either by holding their event on the same day, or by encouraging their seniors and honors students to present at the symposium, at the departmental event, or both. Advisors are encouraged to work closely with their students as they prepare for the symposium.
The symposium is sponsored by the Office of the Dean of Arts and Sciences and the Office of the Dean of Studies.
If you have questions about the 2012 symposium, please contact Randal Doane, assistant dean of studies, at senior.symposium@oberlin.edu. We look forward to seeing you on April 27.
