This week on OU Create, we are ushered into the second half of 2018 with mixed feelings; sad as we read posts from some students about their last days at their respective study abroad trips but also proud of students that were awarded for their outstanding talent at design. Know more as you read the Best of OU Create, 6/25 – 7/01!
And now for the roundup…
It’s the last day Kate will be with her group and although this saddens her, visiting the Roman Forum and the Colosseum seem to have made her day. In her post, she talks about seeing the ruins of famous Julius Caesar.
As Te’a wraps up her entire study abroad trip, she reflects on a few things in her post. Remembering difficult times during the trip where they had suffered an inconvenience, she realizes that it is important to think of them as opportunities rather than obligations.Andrae’s post captures her excitement about touring the ancient city of Rome. Making a wish at the Trevi fountain and beholding a masterpiece of Michelangelo (as shown below) were some of the highlights of her day.
Triggered by a simulation played in their teenage life, Davion’s post focusses on the dilemma involved in choosing between wild-life conservation and human survival. They acknowledge that such decisions should be made with long-term impacts in mind.
Lastly and on a celebratory note, three OU students: Jill, Mikayla and Jacob won first, second and third place in the poster design competition for the 2018 Neustadt Lit Festival. A huge congratulations to Jill Craighead who had the winning design! Cheers to more awards in the future!
And that’s all for now! Keep writing posts, and stay tuned for the next Best of OU Create roundup!
