What is the Celebration of Scholars (CoS)?  The CoS is an academic and scholarly conference at which research and original summative student work in all disciplines may be presented to an audience of fellow students, faculty members, community members, and professionals in the discipline.

The work should be original, supported by a faculty member, and fit the definition of summative production in your main academic discipline.

Why should I present? Presenting your original work is an excellent way to demonstrate your learning in a public venue.  It looks excellent on your resume and is highly desirable for graduate school applications.
