Date: Wed, 12 Nov 1997 10:47:52 -0500 From: Wayne Glowka Subject: Shameless Spam for the Possible Benefit of a Student Our English department is suddenly facing the possibility of an unfilled graduate assistantship in winter quarter. Graduate assistants receive full remission of tuition (whether in-state or out-of-state) and a nominal stipend of $1100 per quarter. (The students do have to pay some additional fees, however.) Assistants normally work 15-20 hours per week. The current assistant helps composition students in the computer lab, does one-on-one tutoring, and sometimes does an odd assortment of tasks in the department office. The duties could be subject to change and could include some editorial work for a journal. To qualify, the student must have regular admission status in our M.A. program (bachelor's degree from an accredited institution, 3.0 GPA [on 4.0 scale] for all undergraduate work, 550 on the GRE verbal or 55 on the MAT, and an undergraduate major in English). Our program is very small, and we can afford to give students a lot of individual attention. Students interested in working with the manuscripts of Flannery O'Connor would find Milledgeville a Mecca. (We also have a lot of alphabetized new words lying around in boxes.) Interested students should get in touch with me by any means available--immediately.
