Be Inspirational: The BSOS International Peace and Relations Quote Contest

Following the success of the recent Chincoteague Hall renovation and inauguration, the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences (BSOS) is sponsoring a student contest for the best quote from a world leader or well-known public figure, relating to international peace or international relations.

Students are encouraged to submit an inspirational quote that represents the essence of Chincoteague Hall as related to the research interests of its current occupants and in keeping with the theme of quotes currently on display throughout the building: peace, globalization, freedom and humanitarianism.
