[voks] · Noun · The latin word for voice

An independent platform for student expression. Using either spoken, visual, or written platforms, students can submit their works or personal thoughts on their experience within John W. Bailly’s classes and events, whether it be study abroad or attending the Aesthetics and Values reception at the end of the spring semester. Your voices deserved to be heard and this is where they can echo and inspire other students.

Please email Isabella Marie Garcia, igarc118@fiu.edu, if you would like your piece, in any shape and form, placed on the VOX page.

ZipOdes by FIU Honors College students
In collaboration with O, Miami and WLRN, FIU Honors College students were invited to write and share their own ZipOdes at Vizcaya Museum & Gardens on the evening of April 25th. ZipOdes, a hermit crab form of writing that is based on one’s postal code, allowed students to dedicate a brief passage to their own home, FIU, or Vizcaya Museum & Gardens.
