SRyou Student Exposition proposals must be submitted before Feb. deadline
SRyou Student Exposition is planning to be back to a fully in-person event for 2022 on Wednesday, March 23. The deadline for student proposals is approaching quickly, and students can enter proposals through Friday, Feb. 11.
For newer students who may not know much about it, SRyou Student Exposition is an important opportunity for all undergraduate students to share curricular, co-curricular and extracurricular involvements with their peers, faculty and staff.
“Our theme this year is ‘Adventure is Waiting for SRyou,’” described Anita Lahue ’22, the SRyou Student Exposition planning committee chairwoman. “We wanted this theme to capture the spirit of curiosity and exploration that our presenters exhibit. Whether they are practicing a performance for hours on end, working closely with their faculty to complete ground-breaking research or going out into the community to serve others, the experiences we have at Salve take us on a journey of discovery and growth.”
Due to current policies and procedures, SRyou is unable to welcome guests from outside of the immediate University community. It will be a safe environment for attendees by following the COVID-19 guidelines put forward by the University and the R.I. Department of Health.
Students may submit proposals for any classwork, research, extracurriculars, internships, service learning, study abroad or artistic, music or theater work they would like to showcase in the exhibition. Students can also develop proposals as individuals, in groups or as representatives of campus organizations.
“At SRyou Student Exposition, we seek to commemorate how far our students have come since they took the first step of their adventures,” said Lahue. “I encourage all students to present — not only because of the incredible academic and professional benefits that come with presenting, but also because a day like SRyou reminds us of the greatness that can be found within the Salve community.”
Through participating in this exposition, students benefit by:
- Showcasing their academic, artistic and altruistic endeavors.
- Developing professional presentation skills.
- Enhancing their resumes.
- Discovering the scope and diversity of the achievements of their peers.
The deadline for student proposals is Thursday, Feb. 11.
