CSU Learning Communities presents the first Poster Day Event, Tuesday, December 2, 2008 from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. on the first floor of the University Library. The day will feature a large Poster Exhibit with over 20 posters prepared by students who are participating in one of the Fall 2008 Learning Communities. These tell the story of their experiences learning in community.
Learning Communities also sponsored its very first Essay Contest for students. Winners will be announced on that day and prizes presented to the students at the luncheon, also being held at the University Library.
Several admitted students have been invited to join Learning Communities faculty and students on that day, to see the exhibit and hear more about CSU's Learning Communities Program. Details about new "Signature Learning Communities" being offered in Spring 2009 are now available on CSU Website.
Another really exciting thing is happening on this day.... Our current Demystifying Math and Science LC includes an EDC 300 Course taught by Dr. Debbie Jackson. These students worked with Middle School Students from Barbara Booker School in Cleveland Metropolitan School District, designing an outdoor garden for the school.
The Garden Project was a competitive assignment with teams composed of students from the Middle School, paired with CSU Learning Community students. CSU Faculty participated as judges. We are able to invite this 8th grade class to join us for this event through the collaborative efforts of the Learning Communities staff, Office of Admissions, Dean of the College of Education, Chair of Civil and Environmental Engineering in the College of Science and Student Activities in Student Life.
Please take the time to visit the University Library on Tuesday, December 2 between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. to view the Poster exhibits and congratulate our students.
