Most students want to “ace” exams, written papers, and oral presentations, so what better place to go than ACE – The Academic Center for Excellence?

The Spring Showcase, hosted by the DMAD (Digital Media Art and Design) program, is an annual juried exhibition that allows students to try out new techniques or subject matter outside the constraints of the assignments for classes. The lack of restrictions allows students to explore new mediums or combine them to create a unique approach. The showcase is competitive in that there is a limit to how many pieces of work can be included in the show. The limit is set at 20 pieces, meaning that not all the work submitted can be exhibited. This is the second year that the showcase has been online due to Covid-19. Before the pandemic, the showcase exhibition took place in person where students printed their work, framed them, and set them up for viewing in the Widener TV Lounge in Maclellan Hall.
