The Effects Of Education Cuts

Photos display dishonest picture

OK, maybe not me specifically, but they were there and they were taking pictures for marketing purposes and the university’s website. I found that many people have an adverse reaction to the thought of their […]

Service provides unexpected joy

This spring break, I went to Chicago on a spring break campaign. I originally had gone as a favor to a friend who needed somebody older than 21 to drive a van, but at the end of the trip, I was so glad I went – not because of the generic tourist stuff, but because […]
