Humanities Days Events Student Responses

"Listening to this professor talk made me want to continue to educate myself even more on our history and what really happened. And to also pay attention to what is going on now in our country, in our government and our people because this soon will be history."


"A lot of people may think that dropping the atomic bomb ended the war; well not so true. Japan had already surrendered before the dropping of the bomb…

The discussion had me thinking about different things, for instance why I never knew this if in high school one is required to take world history."
