Northern Kentucky University featured the work of 492 students in the annual Celebration of Student Research and Creativity. The Celebration, which took place April 2-6, included posters and interactive displays, oral presentations and musical performances all across campus.

The posters and interactive displays, which were showcased April 3 in the Student Union, presented research in a range of disciplines, including computer science, chemistry, English and psychological science.

Performances by a dance troupe, a musical theatre tour group, jazz combos and various choirs were just some of the talents displayed in a tent set up between Steely Library and Founders Hall April 2 and 3.

“We have a lot of hidden gems around here,” said anthropology professor and Celebration co-chair Judy Voelker.

This year a subset of events called Celebrate NKU All Around the Campus provided opportunities to see engineering and nursing demonstrations. The Museum of Anthropology, Haile Digital Planetarium, Griffin Hall and the Fine Arts Center also hosted special events as part of Celebrate NKU All Around the Campus.

April 4-6 featured presentations from specific departments, including English, Mathematics and Statistics, and History and Geography.
“This is a chance to get a glimpse of all the things that are happening here,” said teacher education professor and Celebration co-chair Stephen Walker.
The week-long celebration concluded with the opening of an exhibition in the Third Floor Gallery of the Fine Arts Center that featured art created by graduating seniors.
