By Hannah Mason, Assistant Editor

Tomorrow marks 50 days until the end of the semester. In 50 days, West Liberty students will be taking their last final exams of the academic year, packing up and driving home for the summer (if they haven’t already), or adding the finishing touches to the decorations on their graduation caps for the next day’s commencement ceremonies. The “spring” semester is finally, weather-wise, living up to its name, and the days are numbered until summer vacation arrives.

Each student will have the opportunity to present and showcase their individual work and research to the scholarly community, according to WLU Assistant Professor of English Dr. Angela Rehbein, who is a co-chairperson of the symposium. Cash prizes will be awarded to the top two student papers and top two student presentations.
