With project topics ranging from finding joy in Beethoven's ninth symphony to the use of anabolic steroids in sports, there was something for every student at Anderson University's annual day for scholars.

The day was a celebration of sorts, where students, mostly juniors and seniors, shared projects they have been working on for a full semester. [Editor's note: View a Flickr album slideshow featuring Scholars' Day.]

Chemistry professor Scott Kennedy helped put on the program Tuesday. He said he got the idea from his chemistry students, who would present projects at professional chemistry conferences.

"We thought, it's great that chemistry students are doing this, but there's no platform for celebrating those accomplishments in our community," Kennedy said. "So we thought we should do something that's not discipline specific."
