Academic Symposium

Celebrating Student Work

Due to COVID-19, Academic Symposium – an annual celebration of the work of Saint Michael’s College students – will be held virtually this year.

More than 100 students will present work from across all disciplines on Friday, April 23rd and Saturday, April 24th. Students will present in e-Poster sessions, Zoom presentations and pre-recorded videos.

For more information and to see all of the presentations, sign up to receive an invite here.

Academic Symposium features everything from a book presentation on learning disabilities to a poster presentation on Tibetan maternal healthcare to a feature film on the ice climbing industry. Through the event, you get an idea of all that a Saint Michael’s student can accomplish.

In a normal year, the three-day event features work from over 300 hundred students showing off final projects, semester-long research and Study Abroad experiences. Other students, faculty, staff and community members buzz around campus to take in all of the work – allowing Saint Michael’s students to fully showcase their academic success.
