Here's an idea of what to expect during the competition:

  • Students interested in geology perform a dramatic geologic experiment.
  • Future journalists gather clues and report on a crime.
  • Artists present a portfolio of their work.
  • Still thinking of a major? You will have plenty of company in this essay competition and group workshop.
