Celebration of Scholarship & Learning

The Celebration of Scholarship and Learning represents an opportunity for the entire Towson University community to recognize the accomplishments of Honors College students. It is also a great way to build your resume and to learn from the accomplishments of your peers.

The Celebration of Scholarship and Learning is held twice a year - once in early fall during Family Weekend and again typically in early March during the Towson University-Baltimore County Public School Model United Nations Conference. The majority of Honors students who present posters at these events have recently completed an experiential learning experience for which they will earn Honors credit, such as conducting research, studying abroad, undertaking a service-learning course, or completing an internship.

Honors students may also submit proposals for poster presentations on any topic and in any field. Topics for posters may include but are not limited to:

  • Capstone projects
  • Honors theses
  • Research experiences
  • Honors seminars
  • Internship experiences
  • Service-learning projects
  • Study abroad experiences
  • Student activities and organization experiences

Posters are reviewed by a panel of judges and awards will be given for different categories of presentations. The award-winning poster presenters are encouraged to present a regional and national Honors conferences, professional conferences in their field, and Towson University events such as the Student Research & Creative Inquiry Forum and TU4U.
