"The versatility of the English staff and their vast amount of knowledge always blows me away. No matter what professors Carrig, DuPriest, Michie and Smiley are teaching, they are passionate about the job, and expect you to be just as involved. ... Being a young female student, it is empowering to be surrounded by an array of intelligent, successful female role models who are eager to help further a student in his or her way of study." — Jolanta Lutow, '09
