What is Scholars Week?
Each year Baylor sponsors a series of events to celebrate undergraduate creativity. In mid-spring Baylor dedicates an entire week to undergraduate scholarly presentation. Students that have conducted research within the past year are encouraged to present their work. Majors in Computer Science and Engineering display new designs, while film students participate in the Black Glasses Festival. Students from humanities, languages, arts and professional fields, such as business, give platform presentations attended by faculty and other undergraduates. Student researchers from the sciences, mathematics and quantitative social sciences set up poster presentations in the Baylor Sciences Building. Academic departments give awards for the best research designs and presentations, including outstanding individual and group presentation. Students who are not involved in presentations are encouraged to attend Scholars Week and learn about the different opportunities available to them.
