GSU Spotlight: Student Poets Share for National Poetry Month

By Tyree Burnett

Since its founding in 2008, Lyrical Quest, a student group at Grambling State University, has offered an outlet for student artists. Singers, poets, rappers, and musicians on campus perfect their craft and foster their skills performing everything from original pieces to covers of their favorite artists.

In honor of National Poetry Month, GSU would like to spotlight two talented poets from Lyrical Quest.

Spotlight Question: How Do You Get the Courage to Perform?

“Just have fun and remember why you’re doing it, just to tell your story and tell your truth,” exclaims Sherrell Martin, an Elementary Education major from Bogalusa, LA, and noted spotlight artist of GSU’s Lyrical Quest.

Spotlight Question: Why is Poetry Important to You?

Kadedra Ashton, a sophomore Psychology major from Shreveport, LA says, “Poetry gives me a better outlook, and it lets me express myself to people who want to say it, but they don’t say it”.

Congratulations ladies. Continue perfecting your craft and sharing your truth through performance.

About National Poetry Month

After the observed success of National Women’s and Black History month; the Academy was inspired to create a month to bring awareness and appreciation to the art of poetry. Today, National Poetry Month is the most popular literacy celebration in the world.

The end of the semester is here!  While you’re working to retain information, don’t forget your health. Here are five tips to help you, my fellow students, ensure that our last few days on campus are stress free.

Tip 1: Do Your End-of-Semester Check
Remember that our regular class schedule ends on Wednesday, April 25, 2018. Be sure your assignments are in and reach out to professors about potential extra credit.

Tip 2: Plan Your Study Time
Reading period starts Thursday, April 26, 2018 and ends on Friday, April 27, 2018. Take advantage of it. Form study groups and link up with other students who know your class subjects.

Tip 3: Be on Time
Finals begin promptly at 8:00 a.m. on April 30, 2018. Tardiness can tank your grade. So, don’t risk it.  

Tip 4: Eating Hours Change on May 5th
Be mindful of the dining hours in the cafeteria. During finals’ week, Dining Services will be open for normal service hours. After May 5, the cafeteria will be on the weekend schedule. Brunch will be served from 10:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and dinner will be served from 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. 

Tip 5: Schedule Your Shuttle
Lastly, the student shuttle bus will transport students to the airport from April 30 to May 4. Make your reservation before April 30 to ensure you make your flights.
