Wittenberg is preparing for the fifth annual Liberal Arts in Action: A Celebration of Learning on Friday, April 7. The event will take place from 9 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. at the Benham-Pence Student Center and the Joseph C. Shouvlin Center for Lifelong Learning.

Dedicated to celebrating student achievement, the campus-wide event showcases student talent from various academic departments and co-curricular activities, as it unites students, faculty and staff around this year's academic accomplishments. Research pursuits, poster presentations and various performances by more than 140 students are expected this year.
