Stetson Showcase XXIII APRIL 13 — Registration Open

First year students and sophomores might not be familiar with Showcase, Stetson’s annual Undergraduate Research Day, which has been celebrated on campus every year since 1999. Stetson Showcase is one of the oldest and most distinctive comprehensive Undergraduate Research Days in the United States. More than 160 students from the School of Music, School of Business Administration and the College of Arts and Sciences will present research by juniors, seniors and Honors students between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m.  Your day classes are canceled to give you the opportunity to attend what you wish.

Our theme this year, New Worlds, acknowledges the challenges that undergraduate research has faced in the past year, and the new understandings we have had to accept in conducting that research. Also, the theme celebrates the opportunities our students have created for themselves in learning and research in a world of virtual academe.

One of those challenges has been the translation of our campus event onto a virtual platform. This year, we will have a hybrid Showcase. Some events, such as the senior recital and Hand exhibits, will be available both live and online. Two other sessions will be face-to-face but viewable online. Many others will be online completely. You are free to go in and out of sessions all day, attend a music recital, see the art exhibit, and in the evening attend the awards ceremony. We may have to abridge some of our traditional venues this year, but it will still be exciting.  The program as it currently stands can be accessed at


This year students, faculty, staff and family outside the Stetson Community must register to attend events virtually. Registration begins Wednesday, April 7 and continues through April 13. Links for all sessions will be posted. Two links will lead to a You-Tube presentation of Music and Honors entries. For those attending live sessions, there will be capacity limits, which will be observed.  Once the registration form is received, registrants will receive links to the sessions and a full program.  The Registration link can be found at 

Cultural Credit: This year, cultural credit will be awarded by 15-minute participation blocks on Zoom or in person. For every 15 minutes logged into or attending a session, one-third of a cultural credit will be awarded. A maximum of five cultural credits can be earned for the symposium event.
