Austin Peay State University’s revamped career services connecting students and alumni with employers

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – For years, the Austin Peay State University Career Services Office was seen as little more than a resume critiquing service. Students would occasionally stop by the small rooms inside the Morgan University Center to hear that pink paper and a Comic Sans font didn’t help with their job prospects.

The office’s small staff and operating budget didn’t leave it much room for anything else.

Austin Peay State University’s career services mission is to assist students in making the successful transition from academia to the world of work by providing them with opportunities to engage in meaningful activities. (Adison Hardyway, APSU)

5th Annual Holiday Dinner set for December 5th and 6th. «Read the rest of this article»

APSU to Exhibit Art by Military Personnel and Veterans on November 13th

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – John Edmondson Jr. served in the U.S. Navy for 26 years, so it doesn’t come as much of a surprise that his favorite film is the 1965 naval war movie “In Harm’s Way.”

What does surprise people is that Edmondson is a gifted artist, and now that he is retired, he’s harnessing that talent as a student in the Austin Peay State University Department of Art. One of his recent works is a painting of John Wayne, dressed as Captain Rockwell Torrey, from “In Harm’s Way.”
