Auxiliary Student Employee Recognized for Writing
Each year the Department of Literature and Philosophy offers four awards for student writing, one of which is awarded for “The Best Essay In Literature” and is an award for the best essay submitted by an English major. This year’s “Best Essay In Literature” was awarded to University Residential and Auxiliary Facilities student employee Thomas Casteel. His paper was chosen by a committee composed of faculty from the Department of Literature and Philosophy who were very impressed with his writing.
Mr. Casteel will be recognized at two academic events. First is the Honors Day Convocation, a university event that is held each spring on the first Wednesday in April. The Honors Day Convocation highlights outstanding students from all disciplines and areas of college life. The second is the graduation and awards dinner that Department of Literature and Philosophy hosts annually.
