The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Frostburg State University recently held its annual Dean’s Student Colloquium and Dinner.
Created to cultivate and recognize student endeavors outside the classroom, the Colloquium honored undergraduate students from every major program in the College who are engaged in a unique or particularly interesting activity. Students selected for the Colloquium had the opportunity to describe their work.
A combination of formal presentations and informal table talk, the Colloquium promoted the exchange of ideas, fostered interdisciplinary understanding and respect and reinforces individual morale.
Eight projects involving over 16 students were selected:
