FSU College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Holds Dean’s Student Colloquium

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Frostburg State University recently held the first Dean’s Student Colloquium and Dinner.

Created to cultivate and recognize significant 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, fosters interdisciplinary understanding and respect and reinforces individual morale. Abstracts submitted by each participant are included in a booklet that serves as a permanent record of the event.
