Mark your calendars for University College Day on Wednesday, April 11—a day when we come together to celebrate the intellectual and community life of Texas Wesleyan University.
This special day will include a keynote address by Fort Worth City Councilman Joel Burns, a special networking event for students sponsored by the World of Wesleyan Leadership Program, a luncheon featuring Wesleyan grads, panels, debates, a student film premiere, poster boards, pecha kucha presentations, and a cookout with live music!
All day long, students, staff, and faculty will be sharing the interests and projects that have been driving their learning experiences, and they need YOU in the audience.
Faculty members are encouraged to allow students to attend sessions. This event offers professors the opportunity to encourage learning beyond the classroom by linking their students’ attendance at sessions to course content or skills. Students can see the results of their peers’ and professors’ research, collaborative projects, and creative endeavors.
Here’s what you can do as a member of your campus community:
1) Review the program in The Rambler and closer to the event, on campus kiosks
2) Choose sessions to attend and support the presenters who have worked hard to make this day interesting
3) Benefit from the “high-impact practice” of learning outside the classroom
4) Apply what inspires you by planning your own proposal for next year’s UCD!
Please email questions to the Chair of the University College Day Committee, Edita Ruzgyte.
