ESSAI Vol. 10 Now Published

By Jennifer Duda

The editors of ESSAI: The College of DuPage Anthology of Academic Writing Across the Curriculum recently published the anthology's tenth edition.

ESSAI is printed annually and features some of the best academic writing completed by COD students across the curriculum and at all levels of learning. The anthology features essays, literary criticism, research projects, science and technology reports, math projects, exam answers, journal entries, and in-class writing assignments. Since 2003, the journal has published over 300 essays written by students in multiple disciplines such as English, Biology, History, Education, Chemistry, Math, Sociology, Art, and Philosophy.

ESSAI promotes the idea that good writing stimulates analytical and creative thinking, records information and demonstrates learning. The publication provides academically talented students a venue for their writing tales and showcases student artists who design each volume's cover.

ESSAI is recipient of the 2005 Distinguished Achievement Award of the Community College Humanities Association, the Society of Midland Author's Qwertyuiop Award and the 2009 Diana Hacker Two-Year College English Association Award for Outstanding Program for Two-Year Colleges and Teachers.
