Senior Symposium

The Sixth Annual Senior Symposium
Friday, April 24, 2015

Join us for the April 24 Senior Symposium, a campus-wide celebration of the scholarly and artistic achievements of the Class of 2015. Opening remarks by Tim Elgren, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, begin at 1 p.m., in Craig 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 Science Center Academic Commons. An electronic version of the program will be posted on this site in mid-April, and printed programs will be available in Craig Lecture Hall and around the Science Center, on the afternoon of April 24.

Last year’s symposium featured 49 seniors on 16 panels, presenting their independent and collaborative work to the Oberlin community. In addition to the events scheduled for the symposium, the program will list other senior projects of note, including exhibits and recitals, taking place on other dates during spring semester. For more information, please see the list of frequently asked questions about the symposium here.

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 2015 symposium, please contact Randal Doane, assistant dean of studies, at  senior.symposium@oberlin.edu. We look forward to seeing you on April 24.
