The Creative Inquiry Advisory Committee has spent the semester sharing our program with GTC students across the campus and at as many events as possible.
How we started the semester-
We first visited the GTC Honors Program on Wednesday, August 17th and met the new honors students.
Next up – GTC Hey! Day where we shared a table with Dr. Bonnie Smith and International Education. We would like our students to take a CI course and travel to London, Peru, or Italy to collect data and compile this information when they return to earn 3 credit hours to add to their transcript.
Barton Campus Bash – We again shared a table with Dr. Bonnie Smith and met lots of students interested in international travel with a CI twist! Did you know you can travel with GTC and collect information for your CI course while away?

Creative Inquiry Information Sessions
Tuesday, October 11th and Wednesday, October 12th, CI Advisory Committee members shared information on the GTC Creative Inquiry program in 2 information sessions. GTC CI invited students who have at least a 3.0 GPA and have completed at least 24 credit hours to attend and had a wonderful turnout on both days.
On Tuesday, October 11th, we met in the TRC in room 160A with 14 interested current GTC students from diverse majors. We had students from Criminal Justice, Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, Nursing, Mechanical Engineering Technology, Marketing, and Human Services.
On Wednesday, October 12th, we moved the meeting over to the Student Center, room 225, and worked with 7 more students. These students were from Paralegal, Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, and Administrative Office Technology.
The CI Advisory Committee really enjoyed meeting all of these excellent, motivated individuals and we hope to be working with them in the upcoming semesters!
From all of these events, we were able to pair up at least 4 of our Spring 2017 students with faculty and at least 1 more for a summer 2017 class. Stay tuned for the Spring 2017 blogs from these students.
