Better Thinkers Make Better Writers
In Creative Writing and Thought, students take a mixture of courses designed to help them practice the craft of creative writing while exploring its philosophical underpinnings. By recognizing that reading and writing are profoundly inter-related, students learn to be better readers of imaginative works and to take their reading experiences into their writing. Students are provided with opportunities to share their work in group critiques, writing workshops, campus competitions, and informal conversations during weekly meetings of the Wordsmiths.
WHAT OUR STUDENTS DO
University of the Ozarks President Richard Dunsworth, J.D., has been elected to the board of directors for the Association of Presbyterian Colleges and Universities (APCU).
University of the Ozarks awarded 87 bachelor’s degrees to graduating seniors during its 183rd Commencement ceremony, held May 13, on the campus mall.
One of the core values of University of the Ozarks is “the service of all of creation,” and that driving principle was on full display during a recent mission trip to El Salvador by the student organization Rotaract.
