Bellevue University’s 4th Annual Celebration of Student Writing and Research recognizes student achievements
Bellevue University recognizes outstanding student work in the annual Celebration of Student Writing and Research coordinated by the University’s Writing Center.
Selected students from each college offer their insights on writing, followed by an address from the keynote speaker, Nebraska native Terese Svoboda, a winner of an O. Henry (a short story award), a nonfiction Pushcart Prize, a PEN/Columbia Fellowship and other honors.
This event honors students whose works have been selected by faculty as among the best at the University, but the University’s commitment to excellence in written communication expands beyond this event. Many of our degree programs include writing and communication courses, and the University has worked with some of our corporate partners to offer writing courses for their employees.
Students, Faculty, and Staff are invited to the Criss Auditorium in the Hitchcock Humanities Center for this exciting event.
