Coker College Announces Academic Celebration

  The following news release discusses the Celebration of Academics that is taking place next week. One of the highlights of this Celebration will be the "Last Lecture" by Dr. George Lellis, Professor of Communication, at 7 p.m. on Monday evening. The list of events for this special event is included in the college's news release:

Fourth Annual Celebration of Academics 

HARTSVILLE, S.C. – March 19, 2013 – Continuing a tradition that began at Coker College President Robert Wyatt’s inauguration, Coker will host a campus-wide Celebration of Academics, March 25–27.

“One of the most satisfying aspects of putting these programs together is the knowledge that students, faculty, staff and the community grow as a result,” said professor of political science and philosophy Jim Lemke, who organizes the annual Celebration of Academics and directs the Center for Research in Leadership and Community Development at Coker College.

“When dozens of creative scholars – writers, scientists and artists of all forms – gather to share personal stories of their academic explorations, something quite special inevitably occurs.  Engagement becomes learning, students and faculty become collaborators and we become a more vibrant community.”

Among the many presentations in this year’s celebration is a lecture by retiring professor of communication George Lellis, dozens of poster presentations of student research and service-learning projects, and nearly two dozen presentations of student-faculty research projects.

The culminating presentation of Coker’s annual Performing Arts Showcase will be performed at 7:30 p.m. March 27 in Watson Theater of the Elizabeth Boatwright Coker Performing Arts Center. 

The following events of the Celebration of Academics are free and open to the public:
