  The Celebration of Scholarship and Creative Activity is an annual event that gives UW Oshkosh students an opportunity to showcase their research or creative activities in an exhibition or presentation setting. Graduate and undergraduate students enrolled at UW Oshkosh convene in Reeve Union to celebrate the great work they are pursuing in laboratories, archives, and the many other venues where research and creative activity takes place. Students from all disciplines are invited to share their creative/artistic activities and research/scholarly works with other students as well as faculty, staff and other members of our campus community. Presentation formats include posters, exhibition of visual art works, oral (paper) presentations, and performances.  Awards will be given for outstanding entries.
