Iona Scholars Day (ISD) is an annual event to celebrate the scholarship and creative activities performed by Iona students. The day showcases faculty-mentored student work and allows students in all disciplines to recognize and appreciate each other's work through oral presentations, panel sessions, performances, and poster presentations. We encourage all students to engage in scholarly and creative work with faculty, and share your work with the Iona community. ISD projects may be initiated as part of a course or as independent collaborations with faculty.

We look forward to your participation as presenter and guest.

What Students Say About the Benefits of Research

"Undergraduate research at Iona has exposed me to challenges that I would not have had to grapple with in the usual classroom setting. Having had the privilege to work on cross-disciplinary research between computer science and both chemistry and the humanities, I have been able to see (and actually perform) the application of computer science to real-world problems. Research has forced me to use and further develop skills I have learned in the classroom."

Sean Campbell, Class of '16, Computer Science

"Undergraduate research in the sciences at Iona has helped me to build the focus required to think critically and diligently. It allowed me to engage my academic interests in a completely different setting than the classroom, giving me a realistic set of expectations and experiences to assist me in my future work in the medical field."

Peter John Milianta, Class of '16, Biochemistry & Psychology
