Spring 2016 EAPSU Undergraduate Conference:

Against the Current

Calling anyone who feels like making some noise! This year the EAPSU Undergraduate Conference is looking for writers, poets, ANYONE who likes to challenge the status quo...beg for more answers...and go against the current. Please click this link for more information:

If you are interested in presenting or just going to the conference please email Dr. Kungl ( or Alexandra Jones, her assistant, ( This conference is a wonderful opportunity to network, put your work out there, and just have fun! This conference can teach you so much no matter what major or minor you have.

  • Submission deadline for proposals is February 19, 2016.
  • The actual conference is being held in the Alumni Hall at Mansfield University on April 1, 2016 from 8:30am until 4:30pm.
  • If you arrive on March 31, 2016 there will be an open-mic night open to all faculty and undergraduate conference participants hosted by the EAPSU keynote speaker Cameron Conaway ( Conaway is a true example of what it means to go against the current. The open-mic night will be from 7pm until 9pm in The Hut (located on Mansfield campus).
  •  There is preference for SU students who are accepted to present at the conference to be funded by the Technical/Professional Communications (T/PC) department. If you are funded by the T/PC department that means your $25.00 registration fee is covered and overnight accommodations.* However, this all still applies for students who just simply want to go but not present -- as stated ealier preference is for you to present!

Please keep checking in here for updates about the conference.

*Room accommodations can only be made if a certain amount of students go on the trip.
