    “Whenever I had a difficult time (either in my personal life or academically), my political science and women’s and gender studies professors were there for me. Almost all of them would adjust due dates if needed and provide me with extra support as well.”

    “I took a dance class — Tap II — just for fun, and it was an absolute blast! I randomly decided to take Introduction to Women’s and Gender Studies because a friend had recommended it to me, and now that’s my minor. You don’t know what you might like unless you try it!”

    “Relationships with my professors have without a doubt helped me to succeed. Going to a small school creates the opportunity for one-on-one work that a big school doesn’t provide.”

    “I traveled to Peru as part of a J-Term study tour. I can’t even begin to describe how meaningful and life-changing this experience was. I could never get the same kind of experience inside a classroom. I visited Machu Picchu, met indigenous communities, and observed how tourism affected women, the environment, and more.”

    “I always had a desire to connect with people, share stories, make art, and help others. I know my studies bring me those things every day!”
