The Annual Goucher College Student Symposium celebrates the multi-faceted talents of the Goucher student body by combining the Digital Media Showcase and Contest, the Julia Rogers Research Prizes, and presentations on both research-based and creative works that stem from independent student-faculty partnerships and research projects.

The Digital Media Showcase is a collection of student assignments nominated by professors or students, that were completed using digital media technologies such as graphic or photo editing, animation, video editing, sound editing, programming, or web design. These pieces show exceptional initiative and talent on the part of the students. Showcase projects come from a variety of disciplines - from Frontiers to Music to French - and have been completed by students of varying technical skill levels.

Students and professors will be on hand to talk about the parameters of the assignments, how they were completed, and how the use of technology contributed to the student's understanding of concepts and content.

The Digital Media Contest provides an opportunity for students to submit projects created inside or outside of the classroom to be rated based on artistic merit. The submissions are judged by a panel of local artists to determine our first place $500 winner! All Showcase works are eligible for the Contest.

The 2013 Symposium will be held Friday, April 26 in the Athenaeum.
