Welcome to the new official Out Loud! Blog.

This is a place for planning, discussing and informing the students with news related to the annual Out Loud! Festival, which features the voices of the Advanced English Students at RUM.

The Department of English is excited to be hosting the Eighth Annual Out Loud! Voices of the Advanced English Students Festival on April 6th, 2016.

The English Department will host the seventh annual Out Loud! Festival featuring the academic and creative projects of students enrolled in the Advanced English courses. A gallery exhibition of drawings, paintings, three-dimensional works, short films, and other digital media; as well as creative writing and academic essays will be featured in Chardon (CH-326).

Approximately one hundred students participate in this event by exhibiting or performing their works. All of the exhibited works and performances grow out of classroom assignments in the Advanced English courses. This challenging course sequence is designed to foster students' critical thinking, reading, writing, and speaking skills though the in-depth analysis of diverse texts and research-supported critical and creative inquiry.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information, you may contact the faculty coordinator: Dr. Ricia Chansky at ricia.chansky@upr.edu, or the student coordinator Laura Garcia de la Noceda at laura.garcia3@upr.edu.
