PW Graduation Reception!

Hello Everyone!

The PW Club is hosting a reception for students and faculty after the Liberal Arts Graduation ceremony on May 12 at 3:00 p.m in the Graduate Lounge on the 3rd floor of Heavilon Hall. This reception is intended to give students a chance to meet with each other and fond faculty after the ceremony. This would also be a good opportunity to show the PW department off to visiting parents, as well as have a few snacks before dinner.

I hope to see you all there!

PW Club Trip

Hello Everyone!

As you may know, a few of us took a club trip to Six Flags St. Louis last week since our fundraising this year was such a success! We hope to have another club trip next year, so remember to keep your membership updated!

Advanced InDesign Workshop!

Hello Everyone!

The Professional Writing Club is hosting an InDesign Workshop on Thursday, March 29 at 6:00pm in Heavilon 227. Everybody is welcome to attend!

We plan to cover the basics of the program, as well as tactics for creating effective documents and utilizing the programs built in designs.

We’ll also be taking the names of who wants to go with us on our Club Trip and as well as the details surrounding it at this meeting, so be sure to be there! Remember those who want to go on the trip have to be dues paying members that have shown up to at least 80% of the meetings. If you have been coming to the meetings, but haven’t paid the dues of $5 yet, you can still pay at this upcoming meeting!
