The English program at Grace provided me a tight-knit, supportive, and personal community of learning, and it was exciting to have new faculty coming in and further enriching the department. Beyond offering students a variety of literary experiences, the faculty consistently made themselves available to me as I was searching for a vocational path after graduation. Since entering graduate school, I still reach out to them and they're always generous with their time and insight.
