Inquiry Accepting Student Research

v15bigInquiry Undergraduate Research Journal  is now accepting submissions. Inquiry provides a forum for academic research papers and creative works of our talented undergraduates and now publishes two issues annually. The most recent issue, September 2013, is available online and features research from undergraduates in marketing, agricultural economics, mechanical engineering, architecture, and nanotechnology. Over the past decade, the Writing Center has been honored to work with a number of students published in Inquiry, and we reflected on the fine work of these students as we crafted this year’s Alumni Association Incoming Freshman Scholarship prompt, which challenged writers to describe research experiences that have influenced their academic plans and goals. Dr. Marcia Shobe edits Inquiry.

Tuesday, March 4: Open at Noon

Due to the inclement weather and driving conditions, the QWC will open at 12:00 noon on Tuesday, March 4. We will begin tutoring scheduled appointments immediately upon opening. Any students with appointments scheduled before 12:00 noon on Tuesday, March 4, will need to cancel those appointments and reschedule at a later time. We apologize for the inconvenience and the difficult circumstances.
