General Information

You are required to attend and critique three campus events this semester.

Any event held on campus that is open to the general campus community qualifies. It is fine to double-up on an event you are assigned to attend for another class. However, you must write a separate critique for our class.

While at each event, you will need to take notes in your WBK. These WBK pages are due as scheduled on the Online Calendar. WBK Event Critique pages are: 63-66, 146-149, and 157-160.

You are encouraged to complete these as early in the semester as possible. Be sure to plan ahead. "I couldn't find an event" is not an acceptable excuse. Below is a list of campus calendars as well as suggested events.

Toward the end of the semester, you will choose one of these Event Critiques to expand and revise for your Final Portfolio. Note that you will not pass the class if you fail to include this critique in your portfolio.

Also note that complete, accurate information is required. "I didn't know," "I couldn't find out," or "the host left before I could ask" are not acceptable excuses and will result in a failing paper. You may use additional sources to verify or supplement your information. Be sure to save a copy of the event advertisement because these are often taken offline after the event is over.
