Fiat Lux

Fiat Lux & Fall Academic Showcase
A Celebration of Florida Southern College Student Scholarship and Research


April 21, 2022

Florida Southern College fosters an environment where students actively transition from being consumers of knowledge to becoming scholars who create new knowledge, insights, connections, and understanding. For over 20 years, our students have gathered at the end of each semester to present and discuss the scholarly work they have been doing in and beyond their courses.

The goal of Fiat Lux and the Fall Academic Showcase is twofold: to provide students a platform for their ideas, and to provide the wider community a window into the creative and intellectual energy that pervades our campus. Especially during an academic year still impacted by COVID-19, this year’s event provides a singular opportunity to publicly share the meaning and joy of scholarly inquiry.



The Fall Academic Showcase will take place virtually on April 21, 2022 beginning at 1:00pm. We encourage you to take part in as many sessions as you can. Enjoy the conversation!
