Academic Excellence Showcase

For students

Are you, or have you been working, on a long-term project, presentation, or artwork? The Academic Excellence Showcase is a unique opportunity for you to present your scholarly and creative efforts to the greater WOU community. Many faculty will cancel classes in order to allow greater participation, and provide larger audiences, for this important event.


Why you should consider presenting:

  • Gain valuable experience presenting at professional conferences
  • Help gain admissions into graduate school
  • Share your scholarly work with family and friends
  • Enhance presentation skills
  • Build your resume
