Capstone Presentations 2013
The Honors Capstone is the pinnacle of an undergraduate experience. During their Capstone experience, Honors graduates produce their first original, scholarly work. Motivated and capable students from all disciplines are invited to embark on this year and half long journey. During this process, students select their committee, find a topic, propose their original work, and then create their Capstone. Each student invests a huge portion of their time and energy in completing their projects. The Capstone Presentation is the final requirement for graduation with University Honors.
Due to the large number of graduates this year, we will have a poster session in lieu of the traditional presentations. The Honors Capstone Poster Session will take place on Thursday, May 9th in the SLCC Atrium from 12:00 noon - 3:00 pm. The campus community is invited to attend!
