APSU’s revamped career services connecting students and alumni with employers

May 9, 2015

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – For years, the Austin Peay State University Career Services Office was seen as little more than a resume critiquing service. Students would occasionally stop by the small rooms inside the Morgan University Center to hear that pink paper and a Comic Sans font didn’t help with their job prospects.

The office’s small staff and operating budget didn’t leave it much room for anything else.

Austin Peay State University’s career services mission is to assist students in making the successful transition from academia to the world of work by providing them with opportunities to engage in meaningful activities. (Adison Hardyway, APSU)

Dr. Edward Chester, his suit then smelling of chalkboard dust and his dark hair pomaded in the style of Jerry Lee Lewis, sat at his desk that winter to write a comprehensive guide identifying all of Tennessee’s 2,878 vascular plants.

APSU’s Osvaldo Di Paolo explores blending of Hispanic literary genres in new book

May 8, 2015

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – Fictional literature has long shined a light on the times in which we live. In North America, genres like dystopia and science fiction have served as mirrors for the ills plaguing modern day society.

In Spanish literature, the genres of hardboiled, or “novela negra,” and Gothic literature have played a similarly important role – each symbolically exploring, among other things, the criminal and societal dangers in rapidly growing major South American cities such as Mexico City, Bogota and Buenos Aires.
