"I am prepared for success in graduate school at WVU because of my undergraduate degree in English Literature from Slippery Rock University. At WVU I received the Rebecca Mason Perry Award, given to outstanding first year master's students in the English department. Due to the rock solid foundation of critical thinking and analytical skills instilled in me during my education at SRU, I am qualified to finish graduate school and enter the competitive job market as a well-rounded individual."

"I am prepared for graduate studies in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies and as a Graduate Teaching Assistant in the English program at Florida Atlantic University because Slippery Rock University has given me the skills I need to succeed. SRU has some of the best professors I’ve ever encountered who encouraged me to be assertive, confident, and persistent in pursuing my goals. And now I’m doing just that."
