The Liberal Arts & Sciences Symposium brings together the university community in a week-long celebration of exemplary analytic and creative work produced by Oglethorpe students during the academic year.
The week began with “Meet the Majors,” an academic mixer in which students could connect with other peers and faculty members in their department.
The next day began with a poster session, where students presented their class-based and independent research projects. Keynote speaker Eli Arnold ’06 spoke on the importance of shared identity at Oglethorpe before attendees were invited to hear from students in panels and presentations throughout the day. Student art was on view in the Turner Lynch Campus Center and a musical performance capped off the curriculum-encompassing day.
On day three, students in the Hammack School of Business reflected on their spring internships in presentations to faculty, staff and their peers. Student presenters included Nick Boobas, Brandynn Campbell, Dalton Logan, Abraham Lopez-Espinosa, Connor Murphy, Leticia Alves Ribiero Sobrinho, Imisha Sayani and Anglo Zaldana Edea,
The week closed out with two panels on decolonization, migration and identity, featuring student panelists Jonathan Sévère, Olivia Achikasim, Alex Nukpi, Ashrakat Hassan, Jose Valtierra, Olumeka Mejeidu.
