NOTE: The Celebration of Writing has been postponed for the health and safety of participants and attendees. New time and date TBA.
On April 19th, 2018, Spalding held its 1st Annual Celebration of Writing! The event brought together undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty, academic support staff, administrators, and family and friends to read, discuss, and appreciate the fabulous written work being done on our campus. The Celebration took place in the newly-dedicated Academic Commons, on the 2nd floor of Spalding's Library, which is an inviting, flexible, technology-rich space for individual/group study, tutoring, and writing support. We hope you will help us to make Spalding's Celebration of Writing a spring tradition for years to come!
