How Much is Too Little?
Let's face it: University students today have it
pretty good. At decent-sized schools, students
have access to any number of low-cost services
that civilians would donate organs for. We get
gyms and fitness centers for free or close to
it. We have computer labs, lounges and more
clubs and societies arriving every semester.
With little or no fees, on-campus coffee bars
and pick-up basketball games make traveling
into the real world increasingly ludicrous...
Creative Writing & Short Fiction
Jamie Grasser,   University of Northern Colorado
Welcome to Academic Exchange Extra's
first edition including creative
writing and short fiction. Although
AE Extra is committed primarily to
academia and education, we also recognize
the talents and skills that are required
in all forms of expression and writing.
The creative writing selected for
publication in AE Extra is an
example of non-formal, intelligent and
complex commentaries and observations
about real-life issues and concerns.
In addition, it speaks to the reader
in an original way, demonstrating the
ability to articulate meaning, as well
as use language as a device of empowerment.
All forms of writing, whether they are
formal, academic, professional or creative,
should be acknowledged for their ability
to inform and enlighten. It is through
communication that we are able to expound
upon the beauty and benefits of knowledge.
We hope that you enjoy our selections!
Please feel free to respond to what you
have seen, and perhaps submit some of
your own creative work.
