MAHWAH, N.J. — The fourth annual “Scholars’ Day: A Celebration of Student Creativity and Scholarship,” was held on Wednesday, April 27 in Friends Hall (SC-219). Poster presentations were displayed and oral presentations were given in the event which was followed by a buffet dinner for participants, their guests and faculty mentors in the Alumni Lounges.

Scholars’ Day is an opportunity for the entire community to celebrate the creative and scholarly achievements of Ramapo students. Sponsored by the Office of the Provost, Scholars’ Day showcases some of the finest faculty mentored student creativity and scholarly activities undertaken in 2015-2016.

There were 41 posters this year, with presentations being made by students from all five of the College’s schools. Eighteen majors and two free-standing minors were represented, with project topics ranging from “The Sound of Cuban Culture” and “Slaves to a Culture: An Analysis of the Treatment and Welfare of India’s Captive Elephants” to “Building a User-Friendly Android Application to Aid Bird Identification in the Field,” “The Virtual Closet – For Homes of the 21st Century: New Product Development,” and “Italian Expatriate Poetry in Latin America.” This was a juried event and each poster was recommended by the convening group of the major or minor associated with the project. In addition, the dean of each school selected one poster to be given as both a poster and an oral presentation.
