Departmental Scholarship Day

Register Here

At this event, each of our 20 Academic Departments will offer an experience that will allow you to learn more about your potential course of study as a Cedar Crest student. Participate in up to two experiences and be qualified to receive a four-year $1,500 scholarship to pursue a degree in that field. One scholarship will be awarded for each of the following departments:

Art

The session will involve individual portfolio reviews for students applying for the Art and Art Therapy scholarships. While the reviews are being conducted, members of the Art Club will host a zine-making workshop for prospective students while they wait for their portfolio to be reviewed. The zine workshop will result in collage images that will be put into a printed zine that will be sent to all participants.

Biological Sciences


Business

 

Chemical & Physical Sciences

Students will be given an overview of the department and the programs offered. Students will then take a jeopardy type quiz and will be interviewed by faculty in th department. They will also be given a tour of facilities.

Communications

Experience what Communication at Cedar Crest College has to offer! Go to various locations on campus related to Media Studies and New Media to explore all of the exciting things you can do with Communication, while also communicating with the world at large by taking and posting creative (and creatively tagged) selfies to social media!

If you would like to compete for the Communication Scholarship, be sure to bring a portfolio of your work relating to communication and media, which can include examples of or links to video productions, photography, news stores, animation, digital arts, media analysis writings, and more.

Criminal Justice

Participating students will be walked through a crime-mapping experience with the mapping software. Students will produce one or two maps that will then be graded.

Dance

A fun and energetic multi-genre session geared toward dancers of all levels and abilities. Arrive prepared to explore Jazz, Modern and Ballet technique as well as guided movement improvisation and exploration of body dynamics. Dancers will have the opportunity to be viewed for potential scholarship offerings during this workshop so be prepared to put your best foot forward and enjoy an action packed hour and a half of movement and dance.

Education

 

English

 

Forensic Science

Students will write an essay and take an exam on basic science and forensic science.

Health Sciences

Healthy Campus Initiative: Create a proposal for a program that will promote health and wellness on-campus. You’ll receive guidance from a faculty member for what to include in your proposal and then present it to the group.

History

Students competing for either the History or the Political Science scholarship will be expected to analyze and discuss a primary document and apply it to current events. Depending upon the number of applicants, they may expect a short interview with faculty.

Mathematics

Students participating in this session will learn about the math program and math research opportunities at Cedar Crest. Students will be asked to solve several fun and challenging logic problems.

Nursing

A panel of current students will also present. Interested students will also participate in several activities including a patient safety exercise, group interviews, and -- on a lighter note -- elimination cornhole.

Nutrition

The Members of the Nutrition department will present you with a variety of food items and you get to "be the judge". Showcase your skills by serving as a taste test panelist and assess the aesthetic and nutritional qualities of some popular foods.

Political Science

Students competing for either the History or the Political Science scholarship will be expected to analyze and discuss a primary document and apply it to current events. Depending upon the number of applicants, they may expect a short interview with faculty.

Psychology

An important question in psychology is the role of bottom-up vs. top-down processing of information. Do we build up a representations of the world from the raw data our senses provide, or do higher processes in the brain, shaped by both our physiology and our experiences, play a role? The students will participate in a famous experiment to demonstrate the Stroop Effect, which addresses this very question, and has been implemented across the various subdisciplines of psychology. They will then be invited to write up a brief report of the procedure, results, and their experience.

Social Work

 

Theatre

Let's Play: This will be a hands on acting workshop where we will use theatre games and exercises to activate our imaginations and explore character. No preparation necessary, wear clothes in which you can comfortably move. Performers will have the opportunity to be viewed for potential scholarship offerings during this workshop so be prepared to put your best foot forward and enjoy an action packed hour and a half.
