All students are welcome to find the answers to the following questions, which are based on the posters on display both in the library near the Ask Us desk and in the Thistle corridor outside of the library!
1] Find a composer and provide his name, as well as the name of one of his compositions.
2] Find a Surrealist painter and provide his name, as well as the title of one of his paintings.
3] Find a philosopher who was also a prolific author and provide his name as well as one of his famous quotes.
4] Find one of the most well-known symbols of an ancient Empire and state what it represents.
Hint: each image is located in one of the four language groups on the posters respectively. You may use a search engine as an aid.
The first correct respondent will receive a cash credit on their Brock card! Please send your responses to: email@example.com by Friday, October 15.
Submit a “Haiku” in English that expresses how you feel about the language(s) that you are studying in MLLC! Please include your Haiku within the body of your email to firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday, Oct. 7. Winners will receive cash credit on their Brock Card!
Although a Haiku is an unrhymed poetic form consisting of 17 syllables arranged in three lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables respectively, we will adhere to a (much) looser structure! Purists are welcome to follow a stricter format.
