Student-Designed Time at the Res

As you may have already noticed on the residency schedule (see Cara’s link below), a block is set aside on Sunday (3:00-5:00) for Student-Designed Time. This block is for you all to use as you see fit, either in groups or as individuals. If some of you want to get together for a peer workshop, you can do that. If you have a particular issue you want to explore and have found a mentor who is willing to talk with you about it during that time, you can use the block for that purpose. If you want to have a students-only meeting, you can do that. If you want to take a nap, you can do that. Feel free to use the blog as an organizing space if you have an idea you’d like to pursue during that block. I think Poor Yorick and the alumni group are both planning meetings during that time, so watch the blog for announcements regarding those opportunities.

Spring Registration

Folks, spring registration is underway! If you are a thesis student in the spring, Grad Studies has already registered you. You can check Banner for your courses. If you are not a thesis student in the spring, then you have just received an email message from me with registration instructions.

The residency schedule will be posted within the next 24 hours, if technical difficulties are addressed by IT in short order, and the link to residency workshops will be posted as soon as we can get them up–hopefully next week.

AWP Conference 2015

I highly recommend that you all seriously consider attending the AWP conference in April. As those who have gone will tell you, it’s an experience worth having. And if you are interested in teaching post-degree, you will want conference attendances on your c.v. Plus the book fair is without parallel. And it’s only $45 for student registration through early February! And Poor Yorick will be there!
