Scholars Day

Since 2001, Scholars Day has played an important role in the academic life of Saint Martin's University. This annual student conference features talented students presenting their best academic work in the form of research papers, group projects and artistic works.

By sharing the year's academic achievements within the campus community, Scholars Day is an event that brings together students, faculty, and guests in celebration of our Benedictine tradition of learning and excellence. The conference presentations are preceded by a formal luncheon where we welcome a distinguished guest speaker and close with a ceremony recognizing Saint Martin's scholars.

Come join us. Scholars Day awaits you!
