CULTURAL EVENTS POLICY
In order to encourage students to enrich their academic programs and to
take advantage of the cultural events offered on campus and in our
region, the Department of English and Modern Foreign Languages has
adopted the following policy:
Students enrolled in any 100 or 200-level foreign language course
offered by the Department will be awarded extra credit for attending
three (3) university cultural events during the semester.
--Students are required to attend one of the films of the English and
MFL Film series (if this materializes)
and are encouraged to attend at least one lecture or
presentation held on campus.
--Students may also attend the concerts, plays, or exhibits scheduled
by the Departments
of Music and Art, Dance, Theatre, lectures in the Academic Speakers
Series, or similar events offered on campus. If they have any
question about the appropriateness of an event, students should consult
the links below or their course instructor.
--To receive credit for attending a cultural event, students must write
a ¾ to a full-page
commentary/critique (200-250 words) and submit it to
WITHIN SEVEN DAYS AFTER THE DATE OF THE EVENT.
--Students must attend and write up at least TWO events by Friday,
October 26, 2012. The final event must be viewed and
critiqued by Friday, November 30, 2012.
--Students should keep all commentaries/critiques returned by the
instructor in a folder.
The instructor may wish to collect the
complete folder at the end of the semester.
--Upon receipt of three THOUGHTFUL, WELL WRITTEN,
instructor will add three points to the student’s
course grade. No vague or hastily
commentaries/critiques will be accepted.
--If students do not turn in 3 commentaries/critiques, they will
receive fewer bonus
points, according to the following scale: two
points for two acceptable reports,
one point for a single report.
--If they do not attend any cultural event (and submit a report),
ONE POINT will be SUBTRACTED from their course
