Kyle Palazzi (Class of 2015)
English major; Creative Writing concentration
Although I began at Springfield College as a non-traditional student, my time here has been an amazing experience. When I finally made the decision to continue my education on a full-time basis, the faculty and staff of the Humanities department were always willing to help me with whatever I needed, and I was able to find an academic path that was right for me. I could not be happier with the decision that I made, and I have enjoyed my time here every step of the way.
My time as an English major has given me the tools to succeed well beyond my years at Springfield College. The professors here challenge students in every class, whether it is reading and analyzing assigned texts, or acting out scenes from Shakespeare. Each challenge is an opportunity for students to step outside their comfort zone, to learn, and to develop necessary skills that will be essential to their success after Springfield College.
Springfield College has helped me rediscover my love of literature and creative writing, and it has presented me with opportunities that I could have never imagined were possible. Serving on the editorial board of The Alden Street Review has led me to meet and collaborate with so many different people that share my passion for writing, and the friendships that I have made during my time here are ones that I will keep for the rest of my life. I believe that everything that I have experienced here at Springfield College would not have been possible anywhere else.
