Celebrate Gannon Event to Showcase Student Excellence
Posted: April 20, 2018
Gannon University undergraduate and graduate students will
showcase their scholarly and creative work during the University's
annual Celebrate Gannon event, Friday, April 20, 12:30-4:30 p.m. in
the Hammermill Center, 620 Peach St. and Palumbo Academic Center,
824 Peach St.
This event is the culmination of a year's worth of scholarship
and research and an occasion for the University to celebrate
students' hard work, excellence and accomplishments.
"Celebrate Gannon is an annual showcase of the academic
accomplishments of Gannon University's undergraduate and graduate
students," said Jessica Hartnett, Ph.D., Celebrate Gannon Chair and
associate professor of psychology. "It is a wonderful opportunity
to share intellectual passion with the Gannon community and to
learn how to communicate the excitement you feel about the work you
do as a Gannon University student."
"Each project is developed with the assistance of a faculty or
staff advisor," said Hartnett. "Submissions are accepted for four
categories of accomplishments: engagement, fine arts, research and
scholarship. Students may submit either a poster or platform
presentation to share their work."
Engagement includes experiential projects that demonstrate
learning outside the classroom, including service, volunteerism and
mission programs. Fine arts and communication arts submissions
include graphic design, photography and poetry. Research and
scholarship submissions celebrate student accomplishments in
engaged academic subject matter.
The event begins at 12:30 p.m. with preparation time for poster
participants to setup in the Hammermill Center, followed by opening
remarks and a reception at 12:45 p.m., also in the Hammermill. The
poster session begins at 1:00 p.m., and platform presentations
begin on the second floor of the Palumbo Academic Center at 1:30
p.m., both will continue through 4:30 p.m.
