On Tuesday, December 2, the Office of Admissions and the Office of Title III Learning Communities will host Poster Day, an event at which each of the 11 CSU Learning Communities will exhibit posters featuring the exciting academic experiences they have had this semester. The event will be held in the CSU Library in Rhodes Tower, 1860 East 22nd Street.
Poster Day begins at 10:00 a.m. and continues until 2:00 p.m. During this period, the audience will be invited to move through the poster displays, stopping to interact with those who are presenting research or information that is of special interest to them. Poster presentations will provide the opportunity to showcase and exhibit some of the exciting projects, service learning experiences and field trips involved in Learning Communities.
In addition, more than 200 admitted students have been invited to attend the event, giving them yet another opportunity to learn more about the CSU community and reason to attend.
As an example of Learning Community engagement that will be represented, one of the CSU student groups partnered with eighth graders in the Cleveland Municipal School District to create a “land lab,” designing, building, maintaining and studying a garden as one would do in an actual scientific lab. These students, from H. Barbara Booker K-8 Academy, will be on campus to participate in the poster event as well as to tour the University and experience a day in the life of a CSU student.
Faculty, staff, students and the public are welcome and encouraged to visit the event and experience the involvement and interaction among learning community students and the excitement of engaging the University with high school students and others.
Learning Communities create the sense of a small campus by helping students get connected, grow intellectually and socially and achieve better grades and enhance their likelihood of success. In Learning Communities, students are exposed to a variety of disciplines and programs of study that allow them to make connections from multiple perspectives. This usually leads to more fully engaged learning, better understanding, and higher grades.
