New Voices is excited to announce that we will be organizing a holiday cookbook as one of our Fall semester fundraisers. This cookbook will contain recipes from faculty, staff, and students from our represented departments of English, Modern and Classical Languages, and Communication. To help build the contents of this holiday cookbook, we are announcing a call for recipes.
Download the New Voices Holiday Cookbook: Call for Recipes flyer.
By November 21st, please submit your recipe and contact information either via our online submission form or in hard copy at the English Department front desk. We are currently accepting all varieties of recipes as submission; so, please send in your favorites!
If you have any questions or if you would like to pre-order a copy of this holiday cookbook, please feel free to contact the New Voices Planning Committee and check back often for more updates on this project.
We look forward to receiving your recipe submissions and making this event a successful fundraiser!

To the New Voices blog followers –
Today we had our first official New Voices meeting. We were lucky enough to snag the conference room, which was really cool and nicely air conditioned.
We got some new people interested in being involved and on the committee. But if you couldn’t make it (we only had 3 new people, but we had 30 people interested o the list), please feel free to contact us and let us know of your interest in being involved. We need to replace most of our committee next year and we are excited to show any new people the ropes.
Below are the minutes from the meeting, so you can follow along. Enjoy!
New Voices Notes 11 September 2013
Next meeting we will need to talk again about Bags and things and start reading submissions.
The next meeting will happen on…
Tuesday October 1st @11:15AM – Location TBA
So we don’t usually put our meeting minutes up here on the blog. Mostly that has to do with the fact that we have no secretary. New Grad students – wanna volunteer??
It is important to note however, that we are going to have a back to school bake sale at the end of September. We need people to get involved.
Also – our first official meeting of the semester, where YOU are invited to get involved as much or as little as you would like, is coming up.
September 11th – 10AM – in the Grad Lounge – 9th floor of Langdale Hall
Please contact us at email@example.com if you have any questions, suggestions, or comments.
