Writing & Rhetoric Department Professor Don Unger writes:

In my fall 2020 Community Writing class at the University of Mississippi, students created short podcasts for the Oxford to the Ballot Box Project.

They focused on issues that college students face in voting and issues that they thought college students should consider prior to voting in the 2020 U.S. elections.

Topics ranged from how the highest offices in the U.S. affect life on a college campus and some of the issues that Black voters have faced and continue to deal with in Mississippi, to how current policies in Tennessee suppress the vote and how absentee and mail-in voting work.
