For example, “Student Scholars Day is held once each year to celebrate the scholarship and creative work performed by GVSU students. The day showcases faculty-mentored student work, shared through many venues, including (but not limited to) oral presentations, discussion and panel sessions, fine arts exhibits and performances, and poster presentations.
Student Scholars Day projects may be initiated as part of a course or as independent collaborations with faculty. GVSU encourages all students to consider enhancing their personal and professional development by engaging in scholarly and creative work with faculty, and sharing your work with the GVSU community.
