capstone group 2015


Mary Baldwin University’s annual Capstone Festival returns May 12, once again giving outstanding seniors an opportunity to present their scholarly and artistic works to the wider campus and the public.

The event highlights Mary Baldwin’s emphasis on undergraduate research, as every student must present a senior thesis before graduating. The new tradition of the modern-day Capstone Festival pays homage to the earliest days of the Augusta Female Seminary, when, “all final examinations were held in public and members of the board of trustees and the townspeople attended to view students parse sentences, do intricate math problems, and recite soliloquies,” according to To Live in Time; The Sesquicentennial History of Mary Baldwin University 1842-1992.

See the Capstone page for a full schedule and details on student work.
