Scholars Day is a time of celebration as Buena Vista University recognizes the intellectual, scholarly, and creative accomplishments of its students. At this annual, public event, students from across BVU's five academic schools proudly present their best presentations, performances, posters and artistic creations. Conducting research and producing hands-on projects like these helps develop skills for professional success, post-graduate studies, and a life of intellectual engagement. These projects also provide an opportunity for visitors and the BVU community to learn about a wide array of intellectual and artistic topics.On Scholars Day, we encourage you to come and see BVU's students and their scholarly achievements. BVU's 10th annual Scholars Day will be held on April 25, 2014. There will be 68 Presentations (25 Verbal and 43 Poster) given from 122 Presenters. There are 28 Faculty/Staff Sponsors for this year. The keynote speech will be give during dinner by Mandy DeVries, a 2007 BVU graduate, who is an outpatient pharmacist at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. The complete schedule of events can be found on the Scholars Day webpage https://www.bvu.edu/scholarsday/

Moonlight Breakfast Monday, May 19
Each semester during finals week, Student Affairs and Sodexo Food Service host a late-night breakfast for students. Served by the Student Affairs staff, this is an excellent study break as students prepare for their final examinations.

As part of the 24/7 For Your Safety initiative, the Office for Student Affairs, in cooperation with Fitzpatrick Auto Center, encourages all BVU students to Check Your Ride before you travel at the end of the semester.  Simply go to Fitzpatrick Auto Center, 1301 N. Lake, during the week of Wednesday, May 15  –  Wednesday,  May 22 to have a Fitzpatrick technician give your vehicle a quick safety inspection.  Fitzpatrick technicians will check all of your fluid levels, check all your belts and hoses, and check your tire pressure.  The best part is….  IT’S ABSOLUTELY FREE!!!  Just bring your BVU Student ID with you in order for you to participate. If you have any questions, please contact the Office for Student Affairs.

Recreation Services has a wide variety of recreational equipment available for checkout. Items include bikes, canoes, camping gear, bean bag toss and disc golf frisbees. All equipment is free to use for students, faculty and staff, but requires a valid university ID. House hours until May 16 are Monday-Thursday 3-9pm, Friday-Sunday 1-6pm. Work hard, play harder!

Buenafication Day
is BVU's day of service, and one our most beloved campus traditions. On this day, classes are not scheduled and everyone on campus gives back to their community.  The day begins in the morning as students, faculty and staff take part in a kickoff ceremony. Students then serve their community either by doing work on Buena Vista's campus, or going out into the community to clean buildings and grounds.  In the afternoon, students take part in service projects on campus and other activities.   Click on https://www.bvu.edu/bv/community-service/buenafication-day/ for a list of the service projects and the schedule of events for the day.
