The Student Symposium of Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activity provides our community an annual opportunity to celebrate the remarkable contributions our students make to research and other creative pursuits in a wide range of disciplines.

How it works

This conference-style afternoon of presentations, poster sessions, performances and exhibits showcases the work of Randolph-Macon College students completed between August and May each year.

Any current Randolph-Macon College student is encouraged to participate; however, faculty members must register students’ contributions. Any student that wishes to participate, and is not already required to do so, should contact a faculty member or one of the Symposium co-chairs in order to be added to the program.

Presentations can take any number of forms. Posters and paper presentations are the most common, but faculty members can register performances, exhibits, electronic submissions, and other demonstrations. Past sessions have included dramatic interpretations, fine artwork, musical performances, software demonstrations, and more.
