Over the course of four jam-packed days, the College of the Holy Cross saw yet another successful Academic Conference come and go.

From Seelos Theatre and the Hogan Campus Center, to the Cantor Art Gallery and the Stein Atrium, more than 350 students from across academic disciplines presented the results of their independent work in the performing and visual arts, social sciences, humanities, and natural sciences.

Performances, poster sessions, and presentations filled the campus, showcasing a high level of independence, creativity, and intellectual discipline, as well as the role professors play as mentors and model teacher-scholars for Holy Cross students.

Major highlights of the 2017 Academic Conference included: a kick-off event presented by Holy Cross’ bilingual theatre troupe, Uni2ACT; presentations by 30 seniors in the College Honors Program; the opening of the senior studio art major exhibition, “re,” in the Cantor Art Gallery; departmental presentations offered by students of all class years; inductions into national honor societies; performances by Holy Cross’ Chamber Orchestra; readings by creative writing concentrators; and so much more.

For a full list of all the presentations, events, and performances celebrating the dynamic academic accomplishments of the campus community, see the Academic Conference Program 2017 (PDF).

The conference was sponsored by the Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs and the Dean of the College.
