This week students who created promotional materials for the ASC received certificates of appreciation for their creative work. Nine students from Dr. Schroder’s ENG 111 and ENG 111/ENF 3 classes earned extra credit by creating fliers, posters, and TV slides for the ASC. Earlier in the semester, these students wrote papers on the benefits of the ASC and/or ways the ASC could improve its services. As part of the assignment, students also wrote a proposal for promoting the ASC. Then the ASC selected seven of the proposals for implementation.
The finished promotional materials can be seen on bulletin boards outside the ASC (AA-229), outside the Annex (AA-234), and inside the Annex. TV slides are displayed on the TV monitor inside the ASC. Stop by to take a look at their work!
Participating students are: Heaven Asnake Manavi Basnet Bezawit Eshete and Izaiah McMillian Dayanara Garcia Stacy Lehman and William Seo Osman Mohamed-Said Jacob Shapiro
