The Petersheim Academic Exposition 2014: Share, Honor, Unite will take place Tuesday, April 22 through Saturday, April 26, 2014 in celebration of the scholastic accomplishments and academic interests of the entire Seton Hall University community, including both undergraduate and graduate students. The University community is invited to the Opening Ceremony at 12 noon on Tuesday, April 22, in the Main Lounge of the University Center. Opening remarks will be delivered by President Esteban and this year’s keynote speaker will be Michael Zavada, Dean of the College of Arts & Sciences, a noted scholar and biological scientist. In addition, students from North Star Academy Charter School of Newark will present the work that they have been able to pursue this academic year with University support and mentoring.
The Annual Petersheim Academic Exposition is a university-wide event that celebrates the scholarly achievement of hundreds of undergraduate and graduate students through the sights and sounds of academic knowledge and its application. The EXPO is aligned with Seton Hall University's mission in several ways, honoring the innovative spirit of its founder, Matthew Petersheim, Ph.D., associate professor of chemistry, who passed away in 1998.
"Outside of academia, you want to communicate the work, the scholarship and research you do. Petersheim serves as a learning experience with more than 250 students participating this year. It is one of the few experiences where the entire community comes together to look at all the gifts we bring to the community, all the we’ve learned and how to put these to use on a professional level," explained co-chairs Anthony Troha and Jose Lopez.
