I just came back from a little tour of the Livingston Student Center where the Writing Program is running an Undergraduate Research Writing Conference on Wednesday, April 10th, 2013, from 9:00 am - 4:00 pm. It's going to be an awesome event. Over 50 students will present their research projects completed in writing courses (most from Research in the Disciplines), so it will be a great opportunity to pick up some presentation tips and ideas. Registration is free in the main lobby of the student center, not far from the Dunkin' Donuts, and you will get a program directing you to the sessions at 9:00 am, 10:30, and 1:40 pm. The awards ceremony will be at 3:20, where free snacks and refreshments will be served and raffle prizes awarded to students who attend any of the sessions.
Bonus: if students from my class attend the conference (getting a stamped record of attendance, with your name on the sign-in sheet) AND write at least a brief blog post about the event on their class blog, they will receive 2 points of extra credit toward the final grade.
