Newbury Holds First Annual Academic Symposium

Apr. 24, 2018 – On Tuesday, April 17, Newbury held its first annual Academic Symposium event to celebrate the scholastic achievements of students, faculty and staff.

The morning began with the Honor Society Induction Ceremony where 65 students were inducted into one or more of Newbury’s five honor society chapters: Alpha Phi Sigma, Psi Chi, Sigma Beta Delta, Phi Eta Sigma, and Lambda Pi Eta.

Students from all class years participated in the day-long event, presenting capstone projects, showcasing art and design work, and answering questions during a poster session.

Students in graphic and interior design, psychology, communications, computer science, the Honors Program, and other classes participated in individual sessions throughout the afternoon. The Nest sport management podcast also led a live recording of an episode.

At the end of the Symposium, community members were invited to participate in a poster session in the Student Center Auditorium to showcase any achievements, academic or creative work. Projects covered topics in criminal justice, sociology, psychology, criminology, legal studies, marketing, hospitality, literature, poetry and more. The successful event ended with a reception in the Auditorium.

Throughout the day, participants and attendees were active on social media, posting with the hashtag #NewburySymposum18.



Newbury congratulates all participants for their hard work and dedication to academic success. For more photos from the day, visit our Facebook page.
