April 2020 – Drew University’s annual Day of Scholars event went virtual in 2020.
During a two-hour interactive event live-streamed on YouTube, 15 Drew students delivered 5-minute research presentations, musical performances and poetry readings before answering viewer questions.
The virtual atmosphere was filled with positive feedback and insightful questions in the live chat, as well as a few impromptu moments of levity.
When answering a technical question about her flute following a performance of Mozart’s “Concerto in G Major,” Cristabella Fortna C’23 was happy to expose her inner “nerd.”
“Day of Scholars is all about celebrating our inner nerd,” assured Debra Liebowitz, Provost & Dean of the College of Liberal Arts & the Caspersen School of Graduate Studies, who moderated the virtual event.
