            CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – In a unique collaboration between Austin Peay State University students, members of the APSU Social and Political Narrative and Sociology Senior Capstone courses are exploring what it really costs to attend college.

            Dubbed “AT WHAT COST? — The Reality of a College Education,” the project represents the work between two groups of highly talented students exploring the high price of an education, and the price people pay financially, emotionally and physically. The project will be presented and showcased from 11:30-12:30 p.m. on Dec. 2 at a luncheon in APSU’s McCord Building, room 209.

            The presentation will take the form of a poster project, discussing themes developed from interviews conducted on campus, as well as personal narratives from sociology students. In collaboration with APSU art students, the groups helped shape the message each poster conveys.

            Each poster was made using APSU’s Goldsmith Press and Rare Type Collection. The collection is a unique letterpress facility that includes thousands of hand-carved wood letters, antique printing presses, papermaking materials and bindery equipment.
