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 advisor to The
Argus, one of the oldest, continuously published college
newspapers in America.
I am currently working
on The 100 Greatest Fictional Characters in Literature for
Rowman & Littlefield and on short story and poetry
collections. Click on the link below to see a sample interview
from a collection of interviews with Hemingway family and friends
that I did in 1999 with Frank Simons.
I've also been a film critic for various sites since 2000, and
have been a longtime member of the Online Film Critics Society
and a Rotten
Tomatoes critic. I currently write for PopMatters and my blog, FamilyHomeTheater.
