EFL Students & Faulty Present at the Creative Activities & Research Symposium

Creative Activities & Research Symposium 2016 cover image

Even though classes wouldn't start for over a month, students, faculty, staff, administration, and guests gathered in the University Library on August 17 for the Office of Undergraduate Research's 2nd annual Creative Activities & Research Symposium, a day of presenting original research, scholarly and creative activities.

And EFL was well-represented: almost 10% of the 77 presentations were from EFL students and faculty, who presented research on writing and literature and gave poetry performances. Kudos to those who participated!
