Student Spotlight: Dana Alsamsam to be Published in Undergraduate Journal Sun & Sandstone!

Happy March, everyone! I don’t know about you but the air seems a little less tense, a bit less biting, now that February is behind us. We hope the sunshine makes as big a difference to you as it does to us!

Today, we have great news and would like to draw your attention to our amazing students. We got word recently that one of our English: Creative Writing majors, Dana Alsamsam, will have two poems published in this year’s Sun & Sandstone, a national and local annual print literary journal for undergraduate students. 70% of the journal features work by students from across the United States, and is published out of Rocky Mountain College in Billings, MT.
