Pursuing a higher education degree was an easy choice for me after undergrad. I am a scholar and will always love to learn. Looking back on when I first dived into applying for a masters program I could start the summer I graduated from college, I do remember […]

The Rejection Jar – guest blog post by Zoë Fay-Stindt
