APSU senior Thomas Murphy finishes accomplished undergraduate tenure with Washington D.C. internship

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – A common regret recent college graduates share is that they wish they had not let opportunity pass by them.

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – Art can be seen as a window into the world, and Austin Peay State University art and biology double major Nicole Santoyo’s recent work has done that, offering a look into a familiar world through the lenses of an unfamiliar visitor.

Santoyo was awarded a 2015-16 Presidential Research Scholarship (PRS) for her presentation, titled “Southern Epic: Addressing Contemporary Tennessean Life,” a series of oil paintings addressing what she saw as a misrepresentation of the South; namely, a tendency to focus on presenting life in states like Tennessee as more idyllic and glamorous than the reality.
