The Liberal Arts and Sciences Symposium (LASS) is an annual event that brings together students and faculty in a day-long celebration of exemplary research, analytical, and creative work produced by Oglethorpe students during the academic year. The Symposium’s sessions provide a forum for students and faculty to recognize, discuss and learn from these outstanding student endeavors. Panels, roundtables, poster presentations, art exhibitions and performances present the fruits of Oglethorpe’s liberal arts and sciences curriculum as well its student-driven initiatives, including senior honors theses, independent studies, service learning, study abroad and experiential initiatives connecting Oglethorpe with Atlanta and the world beyond.
In conjunction with the Symposium, the Honors and Awards Convocation recognizes students who excel in their major, their activities, or areas of interest on campus. Faculty and staff are also honored. See Sec. 12.1.8. for a partial list of awards presented to (and by) students.
