“The best part of being a writing tutor is seeing lightbulbs go off when brainstorming, revising a thesis, or working through an argument and seeing the sudden clarity about what to write next, and the writer’s block fade away.”

“Political science has broadened my perspective of world politics. You learn about things you never thought about and use a lot of critical thinking skills, which I think is good for the long run. You also have amazing professors who strive to make sure you are understanding the material.”

“When you’re struggling over a test, a course, or even getting up in the morning, remember how wonderful it is to exist. To be here, at this moment now. So many would love to have a chance at an education like we have here. After feeling like it was slipping through my fingers with my illness, it is my goal to never take a day for granted.”
