Apex: The 2nd Annual Celebration of Student Scholarship and Creativity

Apex: The 2nd Annual Celebration of Student Scholarship and Creativity, begins next week in Heritage Center. We invite all alumni and UD friends to join us for all events. A schedule of events is listed below.

Participating students span all majors and disciplines and come from both the College and Seminary. The bibliography created for classroom-based work contains over 90 entries. The bibliography for “Apex in the Academy” contains over 45 entries for students whose work has gone beyond the classroom by presenting at state and local conferences, completed Chlapaty Scholars projects, and more.

On Wednesday afternoon, four Chlapaty Scholars will present their research. We are especially honored to have UD alum Dr. Eric Dickman (C ’02), return to campus present to present the Apex Keynote address “The Final Answer Makes the Questions Seem Absurd: How UD Got Me Thinking through Religion, Reading, and Reflexivity.” Dr. Eric Dickman is Assistant Professor of Religious Studies and Chair of the Religion and Philosophy Department at Young Harris College
