SEE-Beyond panel to offer unique student perspective

Dec. 2, 2014

A panel presentation featuring students who participated in last summer’s SEE-Beyond Program is scheduled at 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 4, in Emerson Auditorium, Palamountain Hall. Admission is open to all.

The SEE-Beyond Program is a competitive process open to all students that provides grants, which allow students to pursue a challenging summer experience through work, research, or independent study. Thursday’s program will feature six students spanning the range of disciplines who have pursued a variety of summer experiences. Participants are Anastasia Eckerson ’15, a dance major; Musa Komeh ’15, exercise science; Hannah Smith ’16, history; Jiakun (Michelle) Fu ’15, neuroscience; Rebecca Morofsky ’15, religious studies; and Hope Spector ’15, sociology.

They will share details about their experiences, discuss the process of applying for the award, and how the experience has impacted their educational and career goals.

Additional information, including the 2015 general application, lists of past awards, and links to additional resources may be found on the SEE-Beyond web page

SEE-Beyond awards encourage students to engage with their academic programs (major or minor) through summer research, internships, artistic residencies, study abroad, and more. Students are challenged to explore new techniques, technologies, or modes of inquiry or expression; to apply their academic-year learning to real-world challenges; and to clarify the interrelationship between their educational and post-baccalaureate goals.
