Most Influential Professor: Dr. Feinstein is incredibly gifted. He’s a phenomenal writer and teacher. He’s always outgoing, willing to help and genuinely cares about your work. His passion is contagious!
Favorite Part of Class: I can’t think of a more rewarding experience than poetry workshops. Everyone in the class writes a poem, reads it to the class and receives feedback from everyone. Each person has something different to say, whether it’s positive or negative, it makes you a better writer.
Getting Involved: I’ve developed so many skills through being involved on campus. From learning the best way to critique, to taking on leadership roles, it’s an essential part of your education.
Advice: Trust God, follow your heart and be willing to put yourself out there. I was skeptical about Ultimate Frisbee club, but I showed up on the first day and I haven’t left since. I ended up meeting some of my best friends there!
