Seniors are required to complete an independent project, in a field of their choice, as part of their graduation requirements. In the spring term of their junior year they submit a proposal for faculty approval. During the summer between junior and senior year they complete their project work and prepare a written presentation. In the fall of their senior year they prepare an oral presentation and present their project to a public audience. Past projects have included building a sailboat, studying a Hindu sacred dance, interning with a State Senator and helping to draft legislation, and studying acupuncture.
October 2013 – Senior Project Presentations
Thursday, October 17 & Friday, October 19, 2013 – Senior Project Presentations – Each senior has chosen an area about which they feel passionate, found a mentor, and immersed themselves for several months in their chosen endeavor. Their projects culminate when they present their work to the community.
The doors will open at 5:15pm to allow time for guests to view the Senior Project display tables before the presentations begin.
