Murkland Hall, Room 115
Please join us for our Honors 20/20 Night - an evening featuring fun, fast-paced presentations that showcase faculty and student work. Honors 20/20 Night uses the “20/20” format, meaning that each presentation is image-rich and includes 20 slides for 20 seconds each. The inspiration is the “Pecha Kucha” format, which you can learn more about here.
