Port Day


During the 2016-17 academic year, Virginia Wesleyan University held its first Port Day conferences at the end of the fall and spring semesters.

This new tradition is a signature Virginia Wesleyan event, designed to demonstrate and promote the academic achievement of students completing capstone undergraduate research, internship, and semester study away experiences.

To view students’ presentation titles, go to the Port Day Schedule and click on “Details.”

The Port Day schedule is conference-style, with concurrent sessions and multiple locations across campus. Students share their work with a professional presentation, either an oral or poster presentation, and answer audience questions.
