I loved the idea of attending Antioch University Midwest because I had heard great things about its history. I wanted a school that catered to adults. I received an invitation from Oscar Robinson, Director of Outreach, to apply for the Creative Writing BA program. I was happy to learn about this opportunity.
As a Creative Writing Major, every class at Antioch Midwest has a strong focus on writing and editing, which is an amazing dynamic to experience in comparison to other schools. The professors bring a unique perspective on writing and gage the student’s academic growth. They, and the coursework at Antioch, have a way of influencing people to follow their dreams. Even though I have only attended courses for a short time, I am truly inspired. Previously, I worked as a journalist and having a degree never was a necessity. Now, I want the credentials to support my writing interest. I also have a few books I would like to write.
