Sixth annual SRyou showcasing students’ accomplishments
From the American Revolution to phantasmagoria to organic farming, the academic interests of Salve Regina students are wide-ranging and diverse. On Friday, March 20, more than 275 of the University’s undergraduates will showcase their research, talents and extracurricular activities during the annual SRyou Student Exposition.
Themed “Grow What You Know,” SRyou 2015 is the largest exposition to date, with dozens of posters, performances and conference-style presentations taking place between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Friday.
“SRyou has become a wonderful Salve tradition and is a great way for the entire community to experience firsthand the amazing intellectual and creative force of our students,” said Dr. Laura O’Toole, dean of arts and sciences.
This year’s student planning board is shaking things up by changing the venues to better accommodate the growing event. Poster presentations and table displays will be in the Rodgers Recreation Center gymnasium, while performances and concurrent presentation panels will be in the Antone Academic Center. The festive closing reception, scheduled for 3 p.m. in Ochre Court, will celebrate the day and kick off the weekend.
At each session, participants will receive a raffle ticket for the chance to win prizes from local vendors, and all student attendees will receive a voucher for a free raffle ticket for Salve’s Got Talent on Friday night, courtesy of the Office of Student Activities.
