Reflection Contest Canceled for 2020
There are many ways to participate in Furman Engaged – as a presenter and an attendee. The program features students sharing myriad types of engaged learning experiences from all disciplines and majors represented at Furman. We encourage students to reflect upon what they hear and see throughout the day, capture these reactions with a photo or narrative, and submit to the Reflection Contest.
Reflection Photo Prompt
Capture an image and explain in 300 words why Furman Engaged is a culminating experience that demonstrates transformative learning in action. How did this moment inspire and inform your pathway at Furman? (This could be related to your own presentation or one that you attended.)
Be sensitive that not everyone wants their pictures taken. Ask for permission before submitting a picture of someone else.
Narrative Reflection Prompt
Select a specific moment during Furman Engaged that represents why this campus-wide event is a culminating experience that demonstrates transformative learning in action. How did this moment inspire and inform your pathway at Furman? (This could be related to your own presentation or one that you attended.) Explain 750 words or less.
Submit your reflection using the form below.
Submissions are due by Tuesday, April 21st.
For the photo contest, submit a PDF document with an image file (jpg, png, gif, or tif). For the narrative contest, submit a PDF document.
Essays will be judged by a committee of Furman faculty and staff. Several $150 prizes will be awarded to the best photo and narrative reflections. Winners will be announced by Thursday, April 30. Selected winners’ essays/images will be featured on the Furman website.
It inspires me to know that here at Furman I will be presented with so many wonderful opportunities that will enhance my academic experience and prepare me beyond measure for life after Furman.
Furman Engaged gives students the opportunity to explore options in fields that relate to their studies and interests, as well as explore those that are on the opposite side of the spectrum.
Furman Engaged has truly opened my eyes to the opportunities available at this institution, and I am sufficiently motivated and energized to take part in this type of integrative work that the Furman Advantage offers.
