Professor Sheree Greer’s Creative Writing students chalked lines from their favorite poems on the sidewalk of the quad on April 7th to kickoff National Poetry Month on Seminole Campus. Poetry covered the paths between the UP and TL buildings and ran along the walk from the UP building toward the library. Passerbys joined in and everyone enjoyed reading the lines the rest of the week!
