2019 Fall End-of-Semester-Celebration

by Becca Roberts ’20

Interdisciplinary Studies got together to celebrate the end of the semester and listen to graduating seniors present their IDS Seminar work on Wednesday, December 11th. Seniors presenting their capstone presentations include: Jess Sullivan, Sarah Connor, Alicia Edgar, Julia DeLotto, Mark Bertrand, Justin Sliker, Kat Holmes, Zach Newquist, Kelly Coughlin, Alyssa Julifs, Ashley LeBlanc, Andrew Galena, Vincent Lapointe-Deptula, Emery Ames, Raymond Steenbeke, Hailey Davis, Audrey Hunter, Keryn Lee, Andrew Civiello, Casey Smith and Kristina Frangos. We all celebrated over food, cake, thank-you-note writing, holiday-themed decorations and fellowship among our amazing majors and graduating seniors.

For many, preparation for the 2019 End-of-Semester-Celebration was a labor of love. From our hard-working IDS seniors in the Senior Seminar class completing their Applied Projects and Research Articles to our stellar Graphic Designer, Ashley Hichborn, developing a party theme, decorations, and promotion for the event, we recognize all the work that went into this year’s Celebration.

This semester Matt changed the format of capstone presentations. There were 4 different tables and seniors took turns presenting in 15 minute intervals. This created a dynamic theme to the event where viewers were free to walk around the room and listen in to presentations. Seniors were passionate about their work and engaged in discussion questions presented by audience members.
