From the 2010 Senior Showcase: (L to R) Professor Paul Escott, Honoree Anna Nicodemus, Honoree Malloy Durr, Professor Helga Welsh, Professor Kendall Tarte, Honoree Courtney Vris

ZSR will sponsor the second annual “Senior Showcase” to recognize outstanding senior thesis research and senior projects completed by Wake Forest undergraduates. Last year’s pilot showcase honored three seniors. The Senior Showcase gives students the opportunity to share their research or projects before the Wake Forest community at an event hosted by the library in April. A committee of library faculty will select up to five students, one from each division of the College, from a pool of nominees recommended by you. Projects completed in the 2010-2011 academic year will be eligible for consideration. The review committee will evaluate submissions using the following criteria:

  • Evidence of thorough research
  • Originality
  • Clear argument
  • Sound structure
  • Well-written
  • Sound conclusions
  • Credible sources
  • Importance to the field
  • Strength of faculty recommendation

Specific details and dates, along with a formal call for nominations, will be announced in the next month. Start thinking now about nominating for your top senior students’ theses and projects!
