2 days down, 2 to go guys. You got this! Finals, prepared to be crushed.
And to all those out there who have officially finished this fall semester congratulations, go celebrate. You deserve it! I personally suggest a couple peppermint milkshakes from Chick-fil-A as a reward, but you do you.
Before you all head out to enjoy the holidays, a couple quick reminders…
Now, I know the LAST thing you want to be thinking about right now is school, BUT there are some really cool things we just HAVE to share. So bear with me, and here we go:
#1: The 48th (!!) Annual WKU Student Research Conference is NOW accepting abstract submissions. This conference covers a little bit of everything: oral papers, posters, exhibits, displays, demonstrations, performances, and videos. Your submission can be research-based or more creative if you like!
This is a really neat opportunity to share your own specific ideas and interests with others. Also, if you participated in any faculty-mentored project, you are most definitely invited to enter! February 16 is the deadline for your 200-word abstract submissions, so take the break to think about it and enter soon!
#2: Last, but certainly not least, did you see the super cool article in the Talisman that featured a few of our English faculty?? In a recent article regarding linguistics, Dr. Elizabeth Winkler and Dr. Trini Stickle were both mentioned in connection with their love of learning more about the art and fundamentals of language.
As you might already know, there actually isn’t an official major offered for linguistics at WKU, but that did not stop one student from going the extra mile and creating her own! Read all about Macy Lethco’s journey and enjoy learning the ins and outs of linguistics.
Ok, that’s it, I’m done. You don’t have to think about school anymore. Seriously, though, think about submitting to the conference and check out the article.
You might even learn something REALLY cool about Dr. Winkler and a project she’s been working on for almost 20 years now!
Have a wonderful restful break filled with food, family, and Netflix. Enjoy it guys, you deserve it!
