"I think it was really cool that everyone else around me from the students to the faculty was interested in the arts in the same way that I was. Our communities were centered around supporting and promoting each other through various events and opportunities that I never thought would be possible."
"I came into LHSP (now LSWA) as a Residential Advisor (RA) my junior year, and they made quick work of making me feel at home. I have loved being a part of this community, sharing my art and growing in my art with the students around me. I am sad to be leaving this year, but the memories and friends that I made through LHSP (now LSWA) will stick with me after I graduate."
"LHSP (now LSWA) 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."
"When I first came to the U of M I thought I had to fit the mold of a perfect student with the perfect major. LHSP (now LSWA) allowed me to see that I could do all my science-y stuff and my artsy stuff together, which eventually helped me realize that I wanted to bring diversity to the arts and mentor young students."
"Even though University of Michigan is not far from where I grew up, college was still a huge transition for me. LHSP (now LSWA) truly became my home away from home, a space that encouraged growth with other artists and writers. I would highly recommend it, as my college experience would not have been the same without!"
"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."
