PORTSMOUTH, Ohio — Shawnee State University’s Celebration of Scholarship is in its 10th year and features student research and special projects from fields of study across campus. This year’s event will be held on Wednesday, March 26 and Thursday, March 27.

The Celebration of Scholarship is an opportunity for students to present academic work in a formal setting, receive feedback from faculty and scholars in the field, exchange ideas with other scholars and build a resumé.

Students will be presenting research, creative work and study abroad programs with oral and poster presentations. The event culminates with a university-wide campus cook-in.
