Upcoming Showcase at WPU

April 12, 2023
Spring Showcase

Mark your calendars for April 18, 2023, and join us for the annual Showcase event to view students’ talent and dedication from this year!

On this special day, students take center stage to share their research, performances, poetry readings, debates, cross-disciplinary creative projects, and much more. It’s a celebration of their hard work and a testament to the importance of communication, collaboration, and sharing.

This year’s Showcase promises to be bigger and better than ever, with 48 internships being showcased and 21 different panels covering a wide range of topics, from academic research to study abroad trips. Whether you’re a student, a faculty member, or just someone who appreciates the power of learning, you won’t want to miss this event.

From the Main Lawn to various locations throughout the campus, there will be non-stop festivities and presentations from 8:30 am onwards. With so much to see and do, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to be inspired, engaged, and entertained.

While students do not have class on Showcase day, they are encouraged to attend sessions.

Check out the full list of panels, times, and locations below, and get ready for an unforgettable experience!
