Conferences

Share your ideas with the world!

Presenting at a conference is a great way of engaging with the classical world outside of UD. Presentations are typically 15 minutes long (around 7 pages double-spaced), so a term paper or a condensed version of your junior paper would work well. The Society for Classical Studies (SCS) and the Classical Association of the Middle West and South (CAMWS) both accept student abstracts, as does the Archaeological Institute of America (AIA). Speak to your professors about the possibility of presenting!

The SCS and the AIA have a joint annual meeting every January, and abstract deadlines are typically in April. CAMWS has its annual meeting in early April, and abstract deadlines are typically in September or October. If you are a member of Eta Sigma Phi, you can submit a paper to the annual Eta Sigma Phi convention; the convention is usually in March or April and paper deadlines are around January. You can also submit an abstract to the Eta Sigma Phi panel at the SCS.

Please note that if your abstract is accepted and you need help with your travel expenses, you can apply for the University of Dallas Experience Award.

Submitting Abstracts

The various conferences have slightly different guidelines for abstracts. Please consult the following links for guidelines.

That sounds like UD in a nutshell, and she thought so too. In the spring of her senior year of high school at The Atonement Academy in San Antonio, as she approached UD's campus for her last visit, she knew she would spend the next four years there and shouted to her mom, "Look, that's my tower! That's my home!"

Senior Story 2020: Legacy Physics Major Soars Toward Aerospace

Given his strong UD legacy, Bill Bennett, BS '20, was practically destined to attend the University of Dallas. Stories about UD's Rome Program and rugby were essential aspects of Bennett's childhood given that both of his parents, as well as many extended relatives, are UD alumni. But while UD was in his blood, he ultimately chose UD because he wanted both a liberal arts education and a degree in physics, and he knew UD was the best place to combine the two.

Senior Story 2020: Business Major Pursues Cybersecurity

It is not uncommon for the University of Dallas (UD) and the University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) to get confused, and Adella Klinte, BA '20, was unfortunately subject to that confusion. When she applied to UD, Klinte thought she was applying to UTD. Crazy though it may seem, Klinte thinks it was God's plan all along.
