Academic Essentials is part of the New Student Connection, City Tech’s welcome to new students. As part of our welcome to new students, all students are invited to participate in the following reflective writing activity.
Reflective Writing Activity
Read the following quote by Dr. Pamela Brown, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs:
Learning is a source of hope for a better future. It requires hard work and sacrifice which can be even more difficult in challenging times. Your time in college is also your opportunity to connect with others, lift your spirit, enrich your life, and develop the skills and knowledge to make a difference in your community.
— Dr. Pamela Brown, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs
