WLU presents the 2015 Senior Colloquium

By Jessica Broverman, Editor

The third annual Senior Colloquium was held in the Alumni Room on Monday May 4. The Senior Colloquium is an academic seminar in which professors and students come together as soon-to-be graduates elaborate on their senior capstone projects. This year’s colloquium included three different capstone groups.

The first group to present included Tara Adamczyk, Nathan Johnson, and Katie Ralbusky, all of which are Journalism majors.

These students received donations for domestic violence shelters and delivered thirty bins of personal care items.
