English Minor Alumnus Testimonial
Class of 2018 Bachelor of Science in Accounting, Minor in English Creative Writing
Accountant at Stage 1 Financial (Aurora, CO)
"Reading and writing poetry and short fiction helped unmask my creativity. The English creative writing minor helped me to cease being introverted, let go of the things I kept bottled up inside, and express those things on the page. I'm a better communicator now. I'm a stronger writer. These skills are important no matter one's profession. My minor taught me to pair both creative and formal writing. Now I confidently make use of them in my workplace. I shared English courses and developed lasting relationships with peers and professors from all backgrounds which helped expand how I look at the world beyond my own personal experiences. The English minor at Lincoln University played a major, positive role in both my professional career and my personal life."
