Just a quick note that Hurrah!!! We got the funding to go to the conference!
It was an interesting experience. We sat with the student senate, talked about what what I’m presenting, convinced them that it would benefit all the students of the campus for me to go, as well as the Writing Center, and then they motioned it, seconded it, and everyone in the room voted on it. It was…very adult seeming.
All but two voted for us going, even though it took up 10% of the budget for the quarter. I don’t care – my talk was worth voting for according to the senate and the students!
