Eastern to hold Student Creative Works Symposium in May

Event to feature projects from students in all areas of study


Eastern Washington University will dedicate two days in May for students to present during a multidisciplinary symposium.

The event allows students to present original works to a group of around 130 faculty advisors and mentors. The symposium provides graduate and undergraduate students with an academic setting where they can showcase their work to people experienced in their fields of study.

The Student Research and Creative Works Symposium is an exceptional occasion in that the participants cover a vast range of colleges of study within EWU. They range from hard sciences, biology, geology and psychology to the more artistic disciples of theater, creative writing and musical arts.

Over the two-day period, former presentations included theater performances from “Macbeth,” student film screenings and creative writing stories that are followed on the second day by psychology research studies on student behavior and gender ideology studies of men and women in horror films.

Lindsey Porter, coordinator for the symposium is hoping the event will attract more Cheney locals to discover what the EWU student body is studying.

Last year’s event featured almost 500 presentations and Porter does not doubt the enthusiasm of this year’s presenters.

Abstract submissions from students are currently being accepted through mid-April and a schedule should be announced in the first week of May.
