CoSA Launches as a Week-long Virtual Event

The unique nature of the spring semester has brought a virtual version of Ursinus’s annual Celebration of Student Achievement (CoSA).

This beloved Ursinus tradition is, for the first time, being presented in a dynamic online format. It begins Thursday, April 23, and runs through Thursday, April 30. Student presentations, posters and performances will all be accessible to the Ursinus community online and, taking advantage of the new format, several projects will also be shared with the public.

Approximately 80 student projects will be on view throughout the week. The event will be interactive with viewers encouraged to leave comments and feedback for students and their faculty mentors. For students who participate in the comments section, an iPad and Chromecast will be raffled off courtesy of the CoSA committee.

Of the more than 80 student entries that will be available, there are two prize-winning dance performances from students and faculty that were performed at the Mid-Atlantic North Regional Conference of the American College Dance Association (ACDA); an online event representing the “hunger banquet” by Sylvia Grove, visiting assistant professor of modern languages; a living newspaper presentation by students with Associate Professor of Theater Meghan Brodie; and the winners of the annual Richard T. Schellhase ’45 Essay Prize in Ethics.
