In the fall, this cohort of first year students took a class on Memoir: Stories of Education with Erica Wiest. The class read and discussed non-fiction writing that offered perspectives on the authors’ educational journey. Through these personal accounts, many issues were raised related to a sense of belonging, access to education, and scarcity of basic needs. Using the life stories as a starting point, students developed these service projects addressing issues of hunger, fire safety, and emotional wellness.
