MJD 2017 exhibit

Academic Symposium 2017 as impressive as ever

Two high-energy campus gatherings Wednesday displayed and celebrated the work and experiences from two popular Saint Michael’s College majors – media studies, journalism and digital arts (MJD), and psychology, setting a tone of serious scholarship, practical mind-expanding experiences and pursuit of passions for the 2017 Academic Symposium at Saint Michael’s College. An “Experiential Showcase” Thursday dramatized how much there is to learn in College beyond the classroom. The Senior Projects Exhibit for MJD late Wednesday afternoon in the Dion Family Student Center Roy Room traditionally has kicked off Symposium, given the MJD/journalism exhibit’s beginnings reaching back to pre-Symposium years. Also Wednesday afternoon, about 30 psychology seniors in Pomerleau Alumni Center hosted community partners with whom they had had done academically-based internships, and juniors networked to arrange experiences for next year.
