Hartwick College will host its First-Year Seminar (FYS) Symposium on Friday, November 30 from 4 – 5:30 p.m. in the Stevens-German Library, Yager Hall, on the College campus. The event, which is free and open to the public, will provide an opportunity for first-year students to show off their work, ranging from research about political change to displays of visual and performing arts. Appetizers, desserts, and beverages will be available for all participants and guests.
Students from 15 different FYS classes have submitted their work and are slated to participate in the symposium. Presentations will include scholarly lectures, posters, works of art, videos, and short monologues.
“Our First-Year Seminar Symposium highlights the College’s commitment to melding experiential learning with the liberal arts from the very first time students take our classes,” said Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Dr. Michael Tannenbaum. “Students, their classmates, and their instructors have been working diligently on these projects, and look forward to the opportunity to share their work not only with other first-year students, but the entire Hartwick community.”
Sample presentations during the FYS Symposium include:
