Scholars Day is a time of celebration as Buena Vista University recognizes the intellectual, scholarly, and creative accomplishments of its students. At this annual, public event, students from across BVU's academic schools proudly present their best presentations, performances, posters and artistic creations.

Conducting research and producing hands-on projects like these helps develop skills for professional success, post-graduate studies, and a life of intellectual engagement. These projects also provide an opportunity for visitors and the BVU community to learn about a wide array of intellectual and artistic topics.

Student Resources

Scholars Day resources are available to students and faculty. A BVU login is required. Please contact Dr. Tracy Thomas at Thomas2@bvu.edu with questions.

Scholars Day Resources

“Scholars Day is an opportunity for students to present their best academic work to their peers, faculty, family, friends, and influential people in their life. Not only do students benefit from the opportunity to present their work, but the BVU and Storm Lake communities benefit from the chance to see the great work being done by BVU students.”
