Early case of senioritis? Classes getting you down? Out of school, but thinking of returning? Try this booster. Thinking of taking a semester off-campus? I highly recommend that you consider IWU's London Program, Denmark's International Studies Program (nearly everyone in Copenhagen speaks English!).
A REMOVABLE FEAST!
Feel free to download these quotes I've assembled:
One good indicator of campus life is the student newspaper. Since
1988, I've been privileged to serve as faculty adviser to The
Argus, one of the oldest, continuously published college
newspapers in America.
Currently I'm working on
The 100 Greatest Fictional Characters in Literature
for Rowman & Littlefield (co-authored with Kirk Curnutt and
Gail Sinclair). I'm also trying to find the time to work on a
short story collection.
I've been a film critic for various sites since 2000, as well as
a longtime member of the Online
Film Critics Society and a Rotten
Tomatoes "Approved Tomatometer" critic. I currently write
movie reviews for my blog, FamilyHomeTheater.
