Dialogos is a day meant to celebrate student scholarships so students can present information, make a poster or even do an art project.

Dialogos will be on Wednesday, April 18 from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. With classes canceled for the day, students are free to present their work and attend each others’ presentations.

“[Sophomore] Itzel Reyes and I are doing research on Kombucha vs. Yogurt, and the effects that probiotics have on the body,” freshman Evelyn Dubey said.

Reyes and Dubey choose to do a project for Dialogos as part of their nutrition class this semester.

“It’s rare when you get to have an opportunity to do research and have that under your belt,” Reyes said. “So I think getting the opportunity to do research is something most students wouldn’t turn down.”

With their research they hope to help make students aware of their body and help educate that health-wise you have to “do what’s best for you personally,” Dubey said.

Another part of Dialogos is the Keynote speaker who must be a Baker alum. This year’s speaker is Emilee Kuhn. She graduated from Baker in 2006 with a degree in Business, Mathematics and Economics.

“I think it’s important to bring alumni back to campus to have them talk to students,” Professor of Business and Economics Judy Smrha said. “The alum piece resonates well with students because they can see themselves and hear experiences that sound familiar.”

Kuhn’s Speech will be at 12:50 p.m. in the Collins Center.

Through Dialogos students get the chance to present but also to learn from their peers in different departments throughout campus.

“It’s really interesting to answer your own question because a lot of Dialogos participants do ask questions that are seriously intriguing to them,” Reyes said. “To actually find results and have the data to back up your question is really interesting.”
