In order to highlight student work and innovation, Mid Michigan College hosted a Student Showcase on each campus. The showcase on the Harrison Campus featured 35 projects from 40 students, while the Mt. Pleasant Campus event featured 101 projects from over 150 students. Projects highlighted work from various programs of study including welding, biology, education, drafting, visual arts, and more.


“The Student Showcase is an important event that allows students to interact with staff, faculty, and community members as they present their work and answer questions,” said Ryan Dziedzic, Biology Lectureship and Student Showcase Committee Member. “The event closes the loop on skills like strategic planning, critical thinking, and public speaking.”

Exhibits included an array of projects and displays, including research papers, speeches, sculptures, short films, posters, and demonstrations, from both general education and career-technical courses.

“We learn so much when we learn from each other,” noted Mid President Tim Hood. “The Student Showcase celebrates both our students’ accomplishments and our faculty members’ commitment to supporting student learning.”

Students were also recognized for efforts that went above and beyond typical projects with several awards.
