Welcome to the student lens on news at Governors State University and the Chicago Southland! Newly renamed ArtSci, the CAS Newsmagazine is a shining example of GSU's hallmark: empowering exceptionally driven students to produce outstanding creations born of their experiences and knowledge.
Welcome to the third annual, and newly renamed, College of Arts and Sciences newsmagazine. Now under the editorial leadership of Dr. Christopher White (English), ArtSci is the collaborative work of dedicated Governors State University (GSU) students Christopher Robison (English BA), Deirdre Roberts (English BA), Maeghan Rybka (English BA), and Cheri Boudreau (English MA). GSU is just emerging from the effects of a two-year budget standoff here in Illinois, and ArtSci demonstrates that in spite of budgetary headwinds, our faculty and staff remain as dedicated as ever to providing students with rigorous programs that integrate hands-on experiential learning as a central component for students to acquire new knowledge and skills, both of which are transferable to a wide range of work and life settings. This year’s newsmagazine includes stories about the GSU faculty-led J.E.D.I team, which competed successfully in a local Robotics competition, the creation of GSU’s first-ever Forensics team, and new programs in Studio Art and Creative Writing, among other things. As ArtSci vividly demonstrates, GSU remains a public square and a place where “residents of our surrounding communities have access to a first-class public education.”
