Guidelines for Festival Attendees
I've never attended an academic conference.
What is expected of me?
An academic conference is an opportunity to actively engage in learning through listening to and conversing with scholars about their work. EMU’s ACE Festival provides opportunity for engaging with visual and performing artists, as well. This is not only an opportunity to support your peers in their accomplishments, but also to broaden your horizons by engaging with disciplines outside your own area of study.
You will get the most out of your day if you come with the intent to learn and the expectation of being surprised by new experiences and ideas!
Undergraduate students are required to attend the festival. See the Attendance Requirements for specific expectations.
