NKU hosts Celebration of Student Research and Creativity

Celebration 2018

April 3, 2018- Northern Kentucky University showcases students’ research accomplishments during the 2018 Celebration events on April 10 and 11.

Undergraduate students can gain hands-on experience by training in a laboratory, working in the field or performing on stage. Under the guidance of faculty mentors, students spend weeks, months and sometimes years honing their performance skills and research abilities.

Their hard work will be recognized during the 2018 Celebration of Student Research and Creativity, which will showcase the scholarly and creative work of hundreds of students from each of NKU’s six colleges.

Celebration’s main poster session will take place Tuesday, April 10 from 12:30-2:45 p.m. Other activities are planned the weeks before and after the two-day celebration. Performances and special events will be under the tents on the plaza while other events will take place off campus.
