Undergraduate Research Conference 2024

Posted by Andy Cunningham on April 18, 2024 at 1:33 PM

This morning, the university held our annual Undergraduate Conference for Research and Creative Practice in Hammond Hall. The conference is a public forum to enhance student's  skills, to share their work, to see the work of others in their field, and to give and receive valuable feedback. The conference was free to attend and open to the public. We're proud of the work our undergraduate community does -  from the opening performance of the Fitchburg State University Choir, to the outstanding research, presentations, creative writing readings, and more, to the closing performance of the Fitchburg State Modern Jazz band at lunch.

Writing II Heritages of Change Class Reception (with ALFA)

Posted by Andy Cunningham on May 3, 2022 at 11:30 AM

The reception was the last meeting of Professor Kisha Tracy's Writing II class this semester, in which attendees celebrated the Heritages of Change exhibition, and heard from current students about their new mini-exhibitions that will be exhibited next spring. This is also a reception to thank you for those who helped with the exhibit in any way - from the students in my Spring 2021 Writing II class who contributed their work to the Deans' Anti-Racism fund to the coordinators at each of the sites who helped make them all happen, to other Writing II instructors who asked for tours, and, if our Adult Learning in the Fitchburg Area (ALFA) mentors who felt comfortable visiting in person.
