Spring Port Day Promotes Academic Achievements

05-02-2017

Spring Port Day is Thursday, May 4, a full day of events, beginning at 8 a.m. with coffee and refreshments throughout campus in the Convocation Center, Blocker Auditorium, and Pearce Hospitality Suite.  Port Day is designed to demonstrate and promote the academic achievements of Virginia Wesleyan students completing capstone undergraduate research, internship, and semester study-away experiences. A conference-style schedule will include concurrent, campus-wide sessions at which students will share their work through oral and poster presentations, reflect on the experiences, and answer audience questions. The day will conclude with the Senior Art Exhibition in the Neil Britton Art Gallery. There will be no classes, meetings, or athletic events held during this day, enabling the entire campus community to celebrate the accomplishments of students, learn about the good work completed, and hear about the transformative power of participation in capstone academic experiences. The day will be particularly important for students who would like to learn how they, too, may undertake a capstone experience at Virginia Wesleyan.  View the complete Port Day schedule on The Lighthouse webpage at: http://www.vwc.edu/academics/port-day/master-schedule.php.
