Virginia Wesleyan College will hold its inaugural Port Day on Tuesday, December 6 from 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. 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. Port Day will feature student presentations in a conference-style format with concurrent sessions and multiple locations across campus. Students will share their work in a professional manner with either an oral or poster presentation and answer audience questions. On Port Day, no classes, meetings, or athletic events will be held during the day, allowing the entire campus community to celebrate the accomplishments of Virginia Wesleyan students, learn about work completed, and hear about the transformative power of participation in capstone academic experiences. The day will also be an important opportunity for students who would like to learn how they, too, can undertake a capstone experience at Virginia Wesleyan. Learn more about Port Day.
