COLLEGEVILLE PA – The Ursinus College annual “Celebration of Student Achievement,” during which community residents can participate in free programs that simulate attending college for a day, returns to the East Main Street campus April 21 (Thursday) from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
- This event has been added to The Post calendar.
The celebration “is a day to massage the mind and celebrate student research, civic engagement, creativity in the performing or literary arts, and to see what a liberal arts education is about,” promoters say.
It includes a student art exhibition in the Berman Museum of Art, and an afternoon creative exchange in Myrin Library. Visitors can meet Ursinus students as they discuss scientific explorations, read original works, and speak on topics from health and fitness research to economics to international relations.
Specific sessions this year focus on concussion research, the role of politics on Pennsylvania’s Clean Power Plan, a spoken-word poetry slam, autism, the association of cell phone use and depression, an analysis of new fall tree planting in Hunsberger Woods, and athletic achievement and service projects.
The programs cover the entire campus, but visitors should stop in Corson Hall to pick up a schedule and a campus map. Lunch can be purchased on campus, or pack a lunch and enjoy the campus landscape and sculpture.
