To honor the University’s Senior-Class-Poet contestants and to commemorate National Poetry Month, the Library is publishing contestants’ poems on Falvey’s blog. The Library also has created posters for the contestants’ poems, which are displayed throughout the first floor.
Each spring semester, all seniors are encouraged to enter the Senior-Class-Poet Contest. The Department of English will announce the 2013 Senior-Class Poet later this semester.

means both weather and time
because when they change
so do we
A Senior-Class-Poet contestant, Laura says “I enjoy poetry because it’s whimsical and it creates song in speech.”
