"1. Julia Dirkes-Jacks/Luke Madden's presentation addressed a pressing issue of societal values. I like how they used humor to ease the audience into the discussion of gender expectations in a relationship and the difficulties of being a…"

"1) Of all the diverse poems she presented today, the one I find most memorable was Sierra's poem about tampons. It not only caught the audience off guard, but I didn't full understand all of the metaphors and allusions she used. As such, I…"

"I especially liked Connor Bradshaw's presentation. He was especially memorable because of the somber/morbid themes of his writing. However, he was able to send a resounding message of hope to those in dark times of their lives. It inspired me…"

When Science Fiction Strays too Far into Fiction

This past summer, I had the pleasure of reading Double Helix by Nancy Werlin. Although initially excited about the book, I found it to be somewhat bland. Double Helix by Nancy Werlin is the story of Eli Samuels, who has always done exceptionally well at everything.

"Jesse, great job unpacking the questions posed by Roth about loyalty. I think our society could, definitely benefit from living a bit more like the faction less. Hope you enjoyed this book as much as me, nice post!"

Kate Randall commented on Jesse Huang's blog post Which Comes First: Faction or Blood?
"Hi Jesse, nice post! I think you bring up a good point about being confined to a certain group and only identifying ourselves that one way. One of the great things about this book is that it's so applicable to society today. Many would argue…"
