Writing Center Workshop staff will hold a Grammar Bootcamp on Tuesday, March 11 from 2-3 p.m. The event will take place in the Workshop Room in the Truax Student Achievement Center.
This workshop will help students get usage and grammar in shape for college-level writing.
The seminar will focus on make or break mistakes that college students tend to make. This seminar will discuss the importance of careful and informed proofreading. The hope is students will come away with the conviction that it is worth the effort to “look it up,” rather than simply saying “close enough.”

The National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA) will be hosting its 48th Annual Conference in Milwaukee on March 19-22, 2014. As part of the programming, more than one hundred related exhibitions will be on view throughout the city and beyond at more than 70 different venues.
The “Johnson Collection of Ceramic Art” is a collection of national contemporary ceramic artists that represent the best in their medium. This exciting group of work ranges in style from trompe l’oeil to functional, all with a stunning attention to form and detail.
Madison College instructor Joanne Kirkland’s functional work in black and white reflects her mastery of form and glaze. Her surface imagery in “Joanne Kirkland Functional Ceramics” reflects her interest in backyard nature as well as geometry of the abstract.
The “Student Show” illustrates the variety of work that is done in the Madison College ceramic studio by our many talented students. Their work ranges from functional to abstract.
The Madison College community is invited to the opening reception of “Three Ceramic Exhibits” on Wednesday, March 12 at noon in the Wisconsin Avenue Atrium of Madison College’s Downtown campus.
The Exhibits run from March 3 – April 4 and are located in the Carroll Street entrance and the Wisconsin Avenue atrium during building hours.
