Published: Honors Oracle for December 2019


I hope that everyone has had a rewarding and productive semester. As of today, the semester has come to an end and we are each, in our own way, preparing for some well-deserved time away from our work here at Marshall to spend time during a break with family and friends.

As with most of you, the student writers and editors of the Honors Oracle have been busy right up until the very end. In their case, not only with their class papers and exams but also producing the latest edition of Honors College newsletter for us all. We are grateful for their service to the college and our community.

The fourth edition of 2019-2020 academic year has been published on Marshall Digital Scholar (MDS). MDS is the institutional repository for creative and scholarly work produced at Marshall University. Please visit the link below to find the PDF file. It is downloadable by clicking on the blue “Download” button in the right-hand sidebar.
