Bay College will be hosting a Celebration of Student Success on Thursday, April 16. This four-part event provides students with an opportunity to exhibit their academic achievements through a variety of multimedia expressions. “I want to invite everyone in the community to come to campus and experience the excitement of student success,” said Kim Carne, Vice President of College Advancement.
The Student Art Show begins at 3:30 p.m. in the North Gallery of the Besse Center. Faculty judges will announce winners in painting, ceramics, photography, and design. Blue ribbon winners will receive purchase prizes and their works will become part of the college's permanent collection.
Annual Student Poster Symposium begins at 4 p.m. in the Café Bay of the Student Center. Posters are a common presentation format used by both undergraduate and graduate students at national conferences. Students who display posters will have an opportunity to discuss and explain their research in detail. In the process they are not only developing presentation skills, but are preparing themselves for the next level of their education. Commenting on last year’s event Matt Krynicki, Physics Professor and Poster Competition Coordinator, said “the students had so much fun presenting their work.”
The Projects in Interpersonal Communication event begins at 4 p.m. in Room 525 of the Student Center. Penney Parmet’s Interpersonal Communication classes will be displaying projects that involve planning, critical thinking, reasoning, creativity, visualizing, decision making, and collaborating. Projects include Powerpoint presentations with imbedded video clips, recorded skits, musical performances, and written research. Parmet’s students are excited about the opportunity to share their work with the Bay community.
The Student Serendipity Night will take place at 7 p.m. in the Besse Center Theater. Featured works include student images of art and selections of student poetry and prose. Bay’s annual publication of Fine Arts is titled “Serendipity.”
