Who Will I Meet?

Morgan Ramos, English & History 

     It was in the English major that I discovered my passion for literature and history, and through it I have found a thirst for knowledge I have never known. I enjoy what I learn in my classes and love the conversations we are able to have about what we have studied.  Our discussion-based classes led by the professors enable students to make the most of their learning. Because of this, we have the opportunity to critically discuss controversial, complex, and creative topics.

     With the guidance of my professors, I will soon achieve a degree for which I have an ever-growing passion. And with the encouragement of these same professors, I have decided to continue my studies in the Library Sciences, so I may aid others in their own quest for knowledge.
