From science to sculpting, Longwood students have it covered. We've collected a range of undergraduate and graduate scholarly work and achievements, across all of Longwood's disciplines, to showcase at this year's symposium.

Online Spring Showcase - Online Spring Student Showcase starts on April 14, 2021

This spring you can view the presentations, ask questions, and comment on research and scholarly work from numerous students from all of Longwood's academic colleges. There will be a mix of asynchronous and synchronous student presentations.

What's it like? 

You'll be in a semiprofessional setting, comparable to an international conference or discipline-specific symposium, and talk to people from across campus — and the local community — about your research. 

Here are a few ways you can present your scholarly work: 

  • Oral presentation
  • Poster sessions
  • Performances
  • Art exhibits

Also, you'll explore and develop skills in these areas: 

  • Working independently
  • Collaborating on research and presentation
  • Translating knowledge to a broad audience
  • Public speaking 
  • Answering audience questions

Public Option

Live virtual presentation sessions will open for viewing to the general public Thursday, April 22.

Student presentations will remain posted on the Student Showcase site and remain viewable by the general public after April 22.

Public versus Private Presentations

Are you wondering whether you should make your Spring Student Showcase presentation public or keep it private?

Here are some reasons you might want to make your presentation public:


Access to your scholarly work is expanded to people outside of Longwood University. The ForagerOne Symposium platform offers powerful dissemination that complements traditional publishing and expedites immediate access to your scholarly work.

Search Friendly

The ForagerOne Symposium open-access platform is optimized for visibility through Google and other search engines, making your work more frequently cited, more visible, and more likely to have greater impact.

Longevity and Posterity 

The ForagerOne Symposium is archived and digitally preserved.
