Arts & Sciences Exposition


The 2024 Arts & Sciences Exposition will be held Thursday, April 25 and Friday, April 26 in the SBU Conference Center, with the catered reception on Friday, April 26 from 12:30 to 2:00 p.m.


The Arts & Sciences Exposition, known more simply as The Expo, is an annual celebration of exceptional research and creative work by students who were mentored by faculty in the St. Bonaventure School of Arts & Sciences.

The Expo is held near the end of April in the St. Bonaventure Conference Center in Doyle Hall. The entire campus is invited to view the projects. The student participants are present to answer questions about their projects during the catered reception.

The projects in the Expo reflect not only the outstanding work of our students, but also the superb mentoring of our Arts and Sciences faculty.

The event was formerly called The Student Research & Creative Endeavors Exposition.

How the Expo works

Early in the spring semester, Arts and Sciences faculty are asked to invite students to the Expo who they mentored on a substantial project during the current academic year and whose performance on the project was meritorious. Honors projects, student research projects, independent studies, and course projects are all welcome.

Participants typically present summaries of their work on 40-inch by 30-inch posters. Other visual project formats are also welcome, such as paintings, drawings, and slide shows.

The projects are on display for two or three days. On Friday, a catered reception is held during which participants stand next to their projects and answer questions from admiring students, staff, and faculty.
