Reinhardt University Convocation of Artist & Scholars

The Robert L. Driscoll Convocation of Artists & Scholars

Highlights from COAS 2015

Reinhardt's best student minds and talent convene every spring for the University's annual Robert L. Driscoll Convocation of Artists & Scholars or COAS. The week boasts music recitals, creative writing readings, a student research conference, Education and Sports Studies student presentations, student art and science exhibits, and internship presentations. The public is welcome and encouraged to attend this unique scholarly event. 

Showcasing Student Achievements

"The Convocation of Artists & Scholars is a celebration of the artistic and scholarly achievements of our students," says Dr. Wayne Glowka, dean of arts and humanities. "We want to show what makes Reinhardt different as a university of its smaller size-the ability to, in one large-scale event, showcase our high achieving students as models for emulation."
