Conference Program Books are available in the lobbies of Baldwin Hall and McClain Hall at 8:00 am. Customizable programs can be made on the schedule page. Registration is not required for session attendance and the entire campus community is invited and encouraged to attend.

Location of Sessions and Conference Events: All conference sessions and events will occur in four campus buildings: Baldwin Hall, McClain Hall, Ophelia Parrish and the Student Union Building. Individual room locations are presented on the conference web site and are printed in the program book.

Refreshment Breaks: Complimentary refreshments will be provided in the lobbies of Baldwin Hall and McClain Hall during session breaks.

All-Conference Reception: A conference-wide reception will be held in the Student Union Building from 3:00-4:30 pm. The entire campus community is invited to attend to help honor and celebrate the scholarly and creative achievements of all student presenters and faculty mentors.



Presentations are grouped into interdisciplinary and disciplinary sessions based on the overall distribution of abstracts that were submitted. Presenters should dress professionally and are welcome to invite faculty mentors, friends, and family to the Conference. Student presenters can find their session time, presentation time, and room location in the program on SRC website. Students should arrive to their schedule session locations at least 15 minutes before the session begins.

Oral Presentation Sessions: Oral presentations are scheduled for 15 minutes each. Presentations should last approximately 12 minutes to leave time for questions. A computer with a projector will be available in each session room. Presenters delivering computer-based presentations should use software packages that are standardly available on campus computers. A moderator will be in each session room to help upload presentations and keep track of time. Presenters should arrive to their scheduled room at least 15 minutes before the session starts to identify themselves to the session moderator and preload their presentation. It is recommended to bring the presentation on a portable flash drive as there will not be enough time between sessions to login to email.

Performance Sessions: Performing arts presentations are examples of theatrical or musical performances, or a combination of the two. The performances are scheduled for 15 minutes each, including time for questions, discussion, setup and teardown. Equipment needs (music stands, piano, etc.) should be requested at the time of abstract submission.
