Millikin students display knowledge diversity during Celebrations of Scholarship
Millikin University celebrated the scholastic achievements of students throughout the campus community during its Celebrations of Scholarship (COS) on April 24. The event featured a full day of student presentations on the Millikin campus.
Millikin's Celebrations of Scholarship recognizes the research, scholarship and creative efforts of students from all four colleges and the University-wide Honors Program, showing that an education focused on engaging students in the theory and practice of their disciplines develops accomplished scholars prepared for graduate and professional study or challenging positions in the workplace.
Multiple research topics were featured throughout the day including Barks for Books, a presentation led by Ramey Sola, a junior human services major from Champaign, Ill. Barks for Books is a student organization that will partner with Dennis Lab School to allow children to read to therapy dogs in order to improve literacy skills.
In Albert Taylor Theatre, Millikin students from "Acting for the Musical Stage" performed scenes and presented research highlighting specific information about their approach.
