Discovery Day 2021 (Virtual) | Benedictine College

Discovery Day 2021

Wednesday, April 14, 2021

Each year, Benedictine College cancels its classes and meetings to allow for students and faculty to attend Discovery Day, a day of learning focused on student projects that have been researched outside of the classroom. More than 3000 students have participated in Benedictine’s Discovery Day since its inception in 1996. In that time, most faculty members and academic departments have taken an active role in sponsoring student projects. This year's Discovery Day will take place virtually, and you can find all the available sessions using the schedule below.
