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.
