Testimonials


I signed up for this honors course because it encompassed everything I could ever want out of a class: honors credits, internship credits, and tutoring that will look great on a resume. I have to admit I signed up for the class mostly for my own benefit at first, but the first day of class really changed my thinking. Odgerel Bat-Yeruult

So let me start by telling you that this has been by far the best English class I have taken at Penn State. Yes, there are a lot of assignments. Yes, they seem daunting when you first look at the syllabus. And yes, this class requires a large time commitment. But I can honestly say that it was all entirely worth it. Jacob Cohen

The literacy and social issues we discussed in class really opened my eyes to some of the neglected inequalities and injustices in our society. As a future physician, I think the discussions we had in the course will really help me better understand my patients with diverse backgrounds. I also really enjoyed tutoring my Korean ESL learner and am thankful for the opportunity to have an impact on someone, even if it may be small.
