During this year’s Graduate Student Appreciation Week, the Graduate School invited students to submit their own creative, succinct, and distinct Say it in 6 entries based on Smith Magazine’s “Six-Word Memoirs®” concept.
To enter, graduate students submitted only six words and a visual aid to tell a story — about their graduate studies, research or creative work, or their very purpose and passion as a graduate student.
There were three categories: creative research, radical research, and Louisiana research. The winners for each category — plus a people’s choice winner — are below.
"Empowered Through Play Broken Child Bloomed" by Jennifer Hiatt in the Master of Science in Counselor Education program.
"The Drums of Zydeco Music Visualized" by Jesse DelGizzi in the Master of Music program.
"Will This Exist When I Return?" by Scott F. Jones in the PhD in Environmental and Evolutionary Biology program.
"Bigger (head size) Isn’t Always Better" by Michael Fulbright in the PhD in Environmental and Evolutionary Biology program.
