The Hollins Student Conference provides an opportunity for the university community to come together to showcase and celebrate scholarly and creative undergraduate work. The conference scope is broad and will feature a variety of podium presentations, poster presentations, and performances from across the disciplines. Awards will be given for the top presentations and performances. The conference is sponsored by the President's Office.

There are three changes to this year’s plans.

  • In addition to submitting individual projects, groups of 3-4 students can propose panels on a common theme or medium
  • Students are no longer required to obtain a sponsor
  • The awards requirements have been modified so as to recognize the top nine point-gaining presentations or performances.
