Winning undergraduate entry to the Maria Dittman Research Competition, Spring 2015. The project was written for English 3210: Writing Practices and Processes.
Excerpt from the competition essay:
With much thought and self-reflection, I decided to write a five-part article series for a Marquette student audience. I feel very strongly that when we chant “WE ARE MARQUETTE,” we should also be able to say that we are Milwaukee. Aware that this was not the case, and that the infamous “Marquette Bubble” is either the barrier or result of a segregated city and campus, I set out on my research quest to figure out how we as both an MU and MKE community can burst the Marquette Bubble.
