This workshop explored the nuts and bolts of searching for grants and fellowships through search engines like Pivot, as well as finding successful examples of applicants from ND to specific grants, like the Fulbright, NASA, DAAD, and many more. It also dealt with the nuts and bolts of composing application documents like research abstracts and proposals. The slides and video recording of the workshop are also available.
Humans versus Vampires
Humans Vs. Vampires (HvsV) is a new version of the popular Humans Vs. Zombies (HvZ) game. However, unlike regular HvZ games, the CSLC's HvsV game will feature foreign language elements to celebrate the fact that Bram Stoker's Dracula is one of the most widely translated texts.
Played like a giant game of tag, the gameplay is simple. Vampires must tag Humans to turn them into Vampires, who then in turn attempt to tag more humans. Humans can defend themselves using Nerf Style blasters or socks.
Over a five- to six-day period, players must survive as they walk from class to class. There are objective-style games or missions each night of the game (capture the flag, scavenger hunt, etc.) which players must try to complete in order to earn rewards to benefit their team. The end of the game culminates in a large final mission.
The gameplay is exhilarating, the people are fun, and there are prizes!
The Fall 2015 game will last from Tuesday, November 3rd through Saturday, November 7th.
To play, *sign up at the link below and attend the MANDATORY Rules Meeting on either Sunday, November 1st or Monday November 2nd at 8:30 p.m. in 131 DeBartolo Hall.

Based on Gerald Graff and Cathy Birkenstein’s “They Say/I Say”: The Moves that Matter in Academia (2006), this workshop presented several techniques non-native speakers can use to maximize their success when speaking and writing in English. It focused on strategies to use in academic writing, including how to use secondary sources, and how to situate one’s own work within broader academic discourse. The slides and video recording of the workshop are also available.
