Confident in My Speaking Abilities
“I had an amazing experience participating in the National Student Exchange program. I was able to practice my Spanish more in everyday conversation where I transferred, and I came back feeling even more confident in my speaking abilities.”

A Gateway to the Serious Questions
“I chose to pursue a major in political science because politics affects virtually every aspect of our daily life. A political science degree offers a gateway to the serious questions and issues pertaining to the public world.”

Follow the Footsteps
“When I first started college, I had the intent to follow the footsteps of a family friend. I chose a communication major, but I was unsure if I would commit to it. As I completed classes within the major, my passion for the study and application of communication grew and I kept the major.”

Gain Confidence
“I was able to build a great connection with Professor Downs. We always had great conversations about the class material, and instead of a lecture, most of the time it was just back-and-forth discussions on topics. It was a wonderful experience and helped me gain confidence at a new university.”
