Call for Content: Student Stories from a2ru Emerging Creatives
Thereâ€™s nothing like a first-hand story. The power of peer collaboration on a national level informs student experiences and is the engine that drives a2ru student conferences. This is best described by Dylan Portelance (Tufts)
, who had this to say about his experience at last yearâ€™s student conference:
I just wanted to congratulate you on a fantastic conference this weekend. I learned a ton and met some incredible people that I hope to stay in touch with. There were times where I felt like I found my â€œtribeâ€â€“people who didnâ€™t even blink when I listed computer science, music and developmental psychology as my fields of study. Thank you for all the hard work you put in and I hope that we cross paths again soon!
Students that participate at 2015 a2ru Emerging Creatives Student Summit
are invited to share their stories on the a2ru website; with a byline
that is generated when they register on the a2ru website
. The University of Marylandâ€™s Patricia Mullaney-Loss
and The University of Utahâ€™s Cindy Chen
are some of the students who shared their stories last year.
We encourage partners to include these student stories on their own websites as well. Michelle Krell Kydd
, Communications Specialist for a2ru, will provide guidance to partner content curators (PCCs) and students who wish to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity.
