Kinesiology Awards Day and Student Research Day
Once a semester the Department of Kinesiology holds a special two-part event, the Student Awards Day Luncheon and Student Research Day.
Student Awards Day is a departmental recognition of our graduating seniors and of those outstanding students who have earned special recognition such as earning a scholarship. Also, it's our tradition to gather our graduating class after the Awards presentation for a class photo.
Student Research Day is a showcase of the results of student research in the department, both undergraduate and graduate. Students give poster presentations to a roving panel of Kinesiology Faculty. The faculty panel then has the difficult task of choosing two undergraduate posters and two graduate posters as the "best of show" which are recognized in a short ceremony at the end of the Research Day program.
Awards and Research day is an afternoon of good food, a chance to spend time with your classmates and your instructors, and a celebration of work well done.
