• VRC Assistantships


Students have the opportunity to work for the VRC in a variety of capacities, including digitization (including 3-D and VR technologies), research, and curation. Openings are usually posted on Handshake at the beginning or end of a semester. In most cases, students commit to working 5 to 10 hours per week.

VRC Blog Posts

At the end of each semester, VRC assistants write blog posts that highlight aspects of their projects. The posts are a way for them to share what they have done with the department, their family and friends, their future employers, and other students at Kenyon.

Poster Showcase

At the end of each academic year, VRC assistants create posters, showcasing the work that they have accomplished, including a summary of the project results. Students collaborating on the same project may work together to create one poster. Posters must meet the following criteria:

  • 18 x 24 inches
  • feature a combination of text, images, and color
  • easy-to-read fonts (titles at approximately 75-point and body text at approximately 35-point, if using the file below as a template)
  • description of achievements and, if applicable, statistical information regarding scanning, uploading, and readership data (including downloads)
  • clearly captioned images
  • a QR code to the project website
  • PDF format

Students may use this Google Slide file to create the poster or another program of their choice. PDF files must be submitted to Prof. Yan Zhou by Thursday, April 18, 2024.
