THIBODAUX, La. — Nicholls State University students and faculty will put their research and creative skills on display during the 14th Annual Scholars Expeaux from March 13-15.

Scholars Expeaux provides students and faculty with platforms to showcase their research and creative projects through a student poster competition, humanities symposium, performing arts presentation, short narrative film screening, visual art display, Mosaic student readings and culinary arts demonstration.
