Write for QC Voices!

QC Voices is now accepting applications for 2017-2018. QC Voices is an evolving experiment that started with a handful of QC students writing about their interests and experiences. Its latest iteration is a thought-provoking site that represents a range of campus communities in some new ways. This past year, our site featured articles about Politics, Math & Computer Science, Hidden Gems in NYC, Futurism, Social Justice, Hip Hop, and Muslim-American Experience.

We are looking for dedicated writers who can work both independently and collectively. Submit a 500-word writing sample describing a topic you’re eager to write about—one you think the Queens College community wants to read about: https://tinyurl.com/lluz4p8.

QC Voices writers earn $500 / semester. They must publish 8 articles and attend 5 group workshops each semester. With that in mind, it’s important that they’re available for meetings, usually during free hour on Wednesdays.

Commencement

The English Department’s Commencement Ceremony will take place on Friday, May 26, in the Goldstein Theatre, around 11:30am (or about 30 minutes after the campus-wide Commencement Ceremony ends).

For the department ceremony, no RSVP or tickets are required. I recommend you and your loved ones get there by at least 11 to grab seats (and even earlier if you need to look for parking). Graduates will sit on the stage, and you’ll be given instructions on where to sit, when to line up to get your name called, etc. Cap and gown are optional. The ceremony usually lasts about an hour, and there’s a small reception with cake afterward.

You do not have to participate in the campus-wide ceremony to come to the department ceremony. However, if you do plan on going to the campus ceremony, you must RSVP at http://www.qc.cuny.edu/registrar/graduation/commencement/Pages/commencement_ceremony_rsvp.aspx.

If you have questions, email Professor Walkden, Director of Undergraduate Studies, at andrea.walkden@qc.cuny.edu.
