All Day Final Examinations (Multi-Day Event)

All Day Student Scholarship Recognition Day
No classes, so all students can attend senior research presentations.

College of Liberal Arts.
All Day STUDENT SCHOLARSHIP RECOGNITION DAY (SSRD)
Student Scholarship Recognition Day (SSRD) is held each spring to celebrate the exemplary scholarship and creativity of Willamette University students. It is a day for students to share the fruits of their research, to present musical, theatrical, and dance performances, and to display works of art to fellow students, faculty, family, and friends. Regular classes are not held on SSRD as a way of honoring the extraordinary accomplishments of our students and demonstrating Willamette University’s institutional commitment to student scholarship. The students whose work is presented at SSRD have been supported in various ways. Some have worked directly with members of the faculty as research assistants or on student-faculty collaborative projects. Others have designed and conducted their own research, often during summer break or throughout their senior year for a senior thesis or capstone research project. Still others have created original works in fine and performing arts. SSRD is not merely reserved for students who have received grants or monetary awards. It is an opportunity to showcase our students’ achievements by all means. Students may apply either individually or as collectively as per-organized sessions. Presenters include students from all years and all majors. One of the committee members has shared the following quotes as testimony about the value of the experience to students. "I thought participating in SSRD would be a good way to showcase my hard work from the semester as well as gain experience as a presenter. This opportunity allowed me to present to an audience greater than a standard class room. I have found that presenting and summarizing multitudes of information is very useful. ... By presenting at SSRD I was able to further my presenting skills and convey ideas in an effective and efficient manner." "Presenting at SSRD last year was an opportunity I am grateful for. Beyond just allowing me to share with my fellow Willamette students what I had worked on all semester, I also gained valuable presentation experience. SSRD continued to be a helpful experience this year, as well, when I was able to put my presentations on my resume for the Fulbright application." The great tradition of SSRD is documented and archived. To find more about the past years’ programs, please visit “Program” at http://www.willamette.edu/cla/ssrd

    Faculty Colloquium: Huike Wen
    Please join us for a presentation by Huike Wen (Dept. of Japanese & Chinese) this Friday, April 19th at 3:00 pm in the Montag Room. The title of her talk is:TV in 1980s China -- the ideal of modernization Abstract: In 1980s, although it was still a small group of people had a TV set contrasting to the larger population in China, it was obvious that TV sets were becoming a very important piece of equipment that individual families wanted to own. The study is about the representation of intellectual reception of TV in 1980s Chinese media. Scholars have already generated statistical evidence about Chinese TV industry, examined governmental policies which were already stated clearly in policy documents, and disclosed the effect of the international media industry and market, but their studies are mostly based on official political and economic records. This study aims to recover the elided records of Chinese television history, the images themselves. This study is a historical-critical study supplemented by a few oral history interviews. By examining the images of and on TV in more relaxed (at least superficially) cultural forms, such as ‘popular’ magazines, advertisements, TV shows, newspapers and films, the study will seek to explain “what various media institutions assumed about the public’s concerns and desires” and what the government as well as media institutions wanted the public to be concerned about and desire in regards to TV in 1980s China.

    Please join us for a presentation by Michaela Kleinert (Dept. of Physics) this Friday, April 26th at 3:00 pm in Ford Hall 102 - (Kremer Board Room). The title of her talk is: "Ultracold and Ultrafast - A Story of Atoms and Light" Ultracold atoms and molecules are very cold indeed: At only about a millonth of the temperature of outer space (a few micro Kelvin), their internal and external motion becomes essentially frozen, and high precision studies of their quantum mechanical properties become possible. This leads to exciting applications ranging from the confirmation of the standard model of particle physics to quantum computers. In this talk I will introduce you to my research lab on ultracold rubidium and calcium atoms, and their molecular dimer RbCa. I will also give you a glimpse into a much warmer and faster place: Ultrafast industrial lasers. These lasers can be used as "brute force" cutting instruments, but also as high-precision "scissors". My lab just recently received such a laser. We are interested in studying the behavior of different materials as they are bombarded by high-intensity ultrafast laser pulses (so called ablation studies). Results of these studies have direct consequences for industrial applications of ultrafast laser pulses.
