Colloquia sessions offer an opportunity to discuss a book, short story, poem, film, television series, album, podcast, original work, or a topic of interest to our community in a small group setting.
Science, Society, and the Arts March 2021
Finding connection in a socially distanced world.
Science, Society, and the Arts (SSA) is a multi-disciplinary conference for undergraduate and law students to present, create, and engage with original works from our community. SSA showcases student academic projects, scientific pursuits, and the performing and visual arts. SSA also provides a forum for small group colloquia discussions about books, films, albums, and other topics of interest to our community.
The format for our event this year will be 99% virtual, with both live and pre-recorded sessions available during the week of March 8th, 2021.
Information about EXP Waiver Opportunity at SSA 2021
Students will be granted an EXP waiver for qualifying work undertaken in recent courses that is submitted to and presented at SSA 2021. The EXP waiver will be equal to the credits associated with the course in which the work was developed. Please note, this does not grant students additional credit on their transcript nor does it reduce the graduation requirement of 120 total credits. In order to receive consideration for an EXP waiver, the following must apply:
- The work must have been a substantial (think term project), graded component of a credit-bearing course at W&L that does not already have the EXP designation.
- The work must be verified by the syllabus and professor who taught the course.
- The work must be presented in an SSA research paper or poster session, as a visual arts exhibit, or as a performing arts event at SSA. Colloquia, Sandbox, and Collaboratory SSA submissions are not eligible for EXP waivers.
