All Scholars Day 2020
Thursday, April 16, 2020
All Scholars Day is a campus-wide celebration of scholarship at Marietta College. All students, faculty, and staff are expected to participate in ASD — it is such an important day that no class meetings are held on ASD! ASD provides students an opportunity to share their research, creative projects, and senior capstone projects with the Marietta College Community. Students give talks, poster presentations, demonstrations, and performances for audiences that span across disciplines, demonstrating the importance of the liberal arts at Marietta College.
