APSU installs new permanent sculpture “The Cardboard Kids”

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN –  To pay tribute to a student population at the very heart of Austin Peay State University’s (APSU) mission, work recently began on a permanent art installation on the University campus, titled “The Cardboard Kids: Monument to the Non-Traditional Student.”

Non-traditional students come in all shapes, sizes and backgrounds. For some, marriage and a family changed their priorities, while others may have enlisted in the military or simply decided a four-year college wasn’t right for them after graduating high school.
