I received a message yesterday from one of our History faculty members about an upcoming panel discussion this Thursday that might be of interest to current students, but also to any families who might be visiting for this Friday’s Campus Day. Here are some details:
Student Panel for History Majors and Minors
Thursday, April 7, 2016
Magnolia Room, Reynolda Hall
Four of our graduating seniors who have secured jobs in different fields (business, teaching, and career development) will talk about how they successfully spoke to their prospective employers about the kind of skills that they have learned as History majors and what gives them an edge in a variety of job situations. Panelists are Mallory Allred (‘16), Carr Cody (‘16), Coleman Craddock-Willis (‘16), Lauren Riley (‘16), and Amy Willard (Office of Personal and Career Development).
This event will be of particular interest to prospective students and their parents as well as current parents to hear from current History students about the value and applicability of History in particular and liberal arts in general. The event is open to anyone. Please RSVP here. Pizza and brownies will be served. Student Panel April 7 2016
We also have a wonderful conference coming up this Friday and Saturday called Words Awake!:
WORDS AWAKE! champions and celebrates generations of Wake Forest writers who return to their alma mater to engage the campus, alumni/ae, area schools, the broader Forsyth County and regional communities, and now the world.
WORDS AWAKE! looks back to Wake Forest writers of the past; hears the work of current writers; debates the nature of writing today and tomorrow; inspires Winston-Salem/Forsyth County school students and Wake Forest students; and honors writers important to the heritage of writing at our University. Wake Forest students, faculty and staff; public school students and teachers; and area writers, readers, and residents all join WORDS AWAKE! poets, screenwriters, novelists, journalists, critics, and prose non-fiction authors to share and shape a common legacy of Wake Forest writers and writing.
These events are wonderful ways to see what Wake Foresters have done with their liberal arts education, and to be inspired by their stories and their creativity.
Do encourage your students to attend these events if they are of interest!
