Last night our students had the chance to share their stories with the program in our annual Coffee House. While enjoying cups of coffee, desserts, and pastries, classes were able to show their peers what they had been hard at work on during the course of the summer.
The Psychology class presented two videos of social experiments they conducted on their friends while explaining how and why people react to the questions they are asked. The Speech and Debate minor presented their final speeches that touched the room as they spoke about life experiences that had changed who they are as a person. The creative writing major and minor class read their original pieces including poems, short stories, and fictional dialog they had created based on real world events. Finally, the journalism class presented their website to the program and explained the interviewing process and research they had conducted to obtain their feature stories.
When the classes finished presenting, the floor became an open mic for students to give their final sentiments and any last words they wanted to share with the program. Overall, it was a warm and heart felt night full of amazing original pieces and encouragement from the students and faculty for the hard work our students put into their classwork over the course of the month.
Here is a video showing just a handful of the 40+ readings that were shared during the night:
