The Colby Liberal Arts Symposium (CLAS) is a celebration of student scholarship. Once a year the Colby community comes together to recognize and celebrate students’ many forms of scholarly engagement.
Students share their research and creative scholarship in posters, presentations, and other projects. They also participate in musical performances, a speech contest sponsored by Phi Beta Kappa, and other expressions of intellectual engagement.
For years prior to 2014 see the Undergraduate Research Symposium collection.

Honors Theses (Student Research)
The Honors Thesis is a research project for which eligible students apply during their junior year and complete in their senior year. Colby departments and programs that have an honors program establish the requirements for the project and its final format. Each student, upon completion of the thesis, is asked to archive his or her project in Digital Commons so that it may be made available to the Colby community and to the world at large.
