"Now, my favorite thing about LSWA...well...where do I start? Have you ever heard a song and thought to yourself, 'everything about this song makes me want to explode into thousands of happy pieces?' LSWA is that song that makes me want to explode into a thousand little bits. In the LSWA program I feel very accepted and I feel accepted into a community of people that are all like me in some way. All of the LSWA and Alice Lloyd staff have been so nice and intuitive and all of my fellow LSWA peers have been amazing. I find myself being able to bond with everyone in LSWA and everyone at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. I just want to give a big shout out to the entire Fourth Floor of Alice Lloyd because everyone really helped make me feel like I was a part of a really big artistic family; regardless of if they're in LSWA or not."
"The program gave me some of my best friends, a completely singular first year English experience and the writing ability and encouragement to win both a Hopwood and the Caldwell Poetry prizes! LSWA did so much more for me than I could have anticipated."
"The friends I made in LSWA are some of the most incredible people I've ever met in my life. Although we were all joined together by a common love for writing and the arts, I really enjoyed getting to know fellow classmates inside and out of Alice Lloyd. Furthermore, the faculty and teachers I interacted with were incredibly inspiring and helped me reach goals I never thought were possible."
"LHSP is a great way to adjust to college and make friends in a close knit community. Its focus on arts is great for artists and non-artists alike who want to add more breadth to their college experience."
"I really valued the personable connections between my instructors and the friendships that lasted beyond the classroom. Above all, I gained a strong support system from the tight-knit community."
