My Alma education

Taught me that I really could figure things out on my own.

My favorite professors(s) included

Dr. Nichols and Tony of course, as well as Dr. Messing. 

My most vivid/best memory of my time at Alma is

Just one?! I would have to say singing Loch Lomond for the very first time. (the old school one, not the one with “die dots”)
