The Computer Science Department hosts its semi-annual Computer Science Symposium on the Friday evening of Study Week. The Symposium is a forum for and an expression of the accomplishments of St. Mary’s upper-level Computer Science majors and graduate students.
The students and groups compete for the best in their class research or product area. Their posters and presentations are judged by IT professionals from the San Antonio community. The top student or top group of each class/software division is awarded an honor cord that they may wear when they graduate.
The Department of Biological Sciences at St. Mary’s University invites current students, alumni, community college students and high school students to join in learning how to be successful in reaching a career in the health fields during the Pre-health Career Conference.
At the conference, keynote speakers, current practitioners, admissions advisers and representatives from local businesses — all from a wide variety of health occupations — are available to answer questions students may have. Attending college students can network, participate in mock interview sessions and learn how to become a more competitive applicant for graduate and professional schools.
High school students are welcomed into different college science classes, including biology, neurophysiology and anatomy. They also receive an admissions presentation, campus tour, and are advised by a panel of current students at St. Mary’s.
