Physics students working with a professor

On Thursday, April 18th, not a single class will be conducted on Marietta College’s campus. However, it would be easy to make an argument that more learning and academic pursuits will take place than any other day throughout the year.

Marietta College is conducting its ninth annual All Scholars Day, which is a campus-wide celebration of scholarship. All students, faculty and staff are expected to participate.

All Scholars Day 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


Presentations by discipline run from 8:00-10:00 a.m. and will be held in Bartlett 166, Bartlett 285, Brown 103, Brown 210, Hermann 205, Selby 148, Thomas 312. Another round of these presentations will run from 1:00-4:00 p.m. in Bartlett 166, Brown 210, McDonough Gallery, Rickey 104, Selby 337, Thomas 113, Thomas 209, Thomas 320, the Band Rehearsal Hall, the Sports Medicine classroom in the Dyson Baudo Recreation Center, and the Timothy O. Cooper Auditorium (Thomas 124).

A few examples of the presentation titles are “Determining the Origin of Fecal Coliform in Goose Run Creek,” “The Matrix-Tree Theorem and Its Application,” and “The Relationship Between Non-GAAP Financial Reporting and the Composition of an Enterprise’s Board of Directors.”

There will also be an opportunity to visit the makerspace that students in the DIY Manufacture course have been creating and using from 1:00-3:00 p.m. in Rickey 104.

The poster sessions are available for viewing from 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. in the Dyson Baudo Recreation Center.

Examples from the poster presentations include “She Died Alone: A Critical Analysis of Margaret Edson’s Wit,” “The Effects of PNF Stretching and IASTM on Vertical Jump and Sprint Times,” and “The Effects of Taste and Disgust on Moral Judgment.”

Also, a free All Scholars Lunch is scheduled for 11:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m. on The Christy Mall.
