“Despite our often limited time, I think it’s important for adult learners to be involved with more than just their course studies. We can learn so much from each other just as surely as we learn from our instructors. Whether we’re reading or contributing our own works to The Student Connection, it’s a chance for us to gain something deeper from our college experience. I’m proud to be a part of it,” said Barkevich.
