Today: Ode to JCU Submission

Seniors, want to get to know your fellow Blue Streaks one last time? You are invited to participate in Ode to JCU, a photo and written exhibit celebrating the Class of 2021! An Ode is a lyrical poem that addresses a particular subject. For Ode to JCU we are looking for you to write a poem, paragraph, a stream of consciousness, sentence, or whatever makes sense to you. The subject of this Ode is up to you – could be to your freshman dorm, a specific class, a teacher or friend, a conversation, an activity you did on campus, an event, sports jersey number, whatever sticks out to you in their time at Carroll, big or small. The primary goal of Ode to JCU is to give seniors a platform to tell their story and to get to know their classmates one final time. The ODEs will be displayed throughout campus during Commencement weekend. When the Ode to JCU exhibit is up in May, the goal is then to share with underclassmen just what JCU can be for them, to thank faculty/staff for the role they played in our experience, and for families that visit at graduation to see what JCU is all about. Submissions are due May 1! Need some inspiration on what to write about? Follow along on our ODE to JCU 2021 Instagram @odetojcu21.
