To pep things up a bit as we near the end of the academic year WRD is planning a series of events April 19-21st called WRD Week to celebrate students in the WRD program!
Throughout the day on Tuesday, April 19th and Wednesday April 20th at 11am, 12:45pm, and 2:15pm WRD will feature events in the WRD student lounge on the third floor of SAC. Stop by tables set up in the lounge to pick up free SWAG, meet a WRD celebrity, grab some treats, take part in a social media scavenger hunt (for a prize!), and chat with your fellow WRD students and faculty.
For these events, we’re also looking for a few enthusiastic WRD students to help staff the tables we’ll have set up. If interested, please sign up here to staff an event along with the two faculty. This is an opportunity to pick up your WRD swag, get other DePaul students excited about the WRD major/minor and to hang out with our awesome WRD faculty or get to know them better.
Also, put on your calendar the inaugural WRD student group “Pizza and Conversation with WRD” event on Thursday April 21:
Topic of Conversation: All this Conversation: The Rhetoric of Beyoncé
Place: SAC 300
Join WRD students, faculty, and friends for pizza and an informal conversation about the rhetoric of Beyoncé. We’ll watch the recent “Formation” video and other clips to generate a discussion about how Beyoncé uses music, lyrics, and images to make social justice arguments. WRD majors Theresa Martinez and Kyla Patterson will lead the event, with the help of WRD professor Jason Schneider.
