New co-taught class offered

A new class, European Romanticism, will be offered by NMU this fall to fill requirements for English programs and German minors.

Listed as EN495, EN595 and LG495, European Romanticism is an interdisciplinary class that incorporates literature, art, philosophy and music from France, Britain and Germany, said Carol Strauss, an associate professor of modern languages and literature. Strauss will co-teach the class with Russell Prather, an associate professor in English.

Strauss and Prather said that anyone who is interested in this upper level undergraduate/graduate class with the necessary prerequisites of EN211 and junior standing, or instructor permission, can take the class. They can be reached at [email protected] and [email protected]

Event to help groups advertise

The Student Leader Fellowship Program (SLFP) is holding a Skill Builder! on Wednesday, March 24, from 6 to 8 p.m. to help students improve their advertising skills.

Cindy Paavola, NMU’s director of communications and marketing and Kira Jankowski, a junior double majoring in graphic design and public relations, will be leading the workshop “Posters that Pop” in the Back Room of the University Center.

Jankowski said that the purpose of this workshop is to help students develop more effective marketing skills and to let students know how useful posters can be for advertising. This workshop will also help students and community members discover resources on campus for laminating and printing supplies. This free event is open to students.
