In reminiscing on my junior year and the most positive experiences of that year, among the top few was the U.S. History Paper! While I chose a topic on medicine that I truly enjoyed, I remember feeling intimidated and fearful of the writing process at the beginning- a process that ended up being among the most enlightening educational experiences of my lifetime. I had the privilege of researching a topic I yearn to devote my life to, spending time with my very knowledgeable teacher and finding resources selected by very helpful librarians, but unfortunately, many juniors do not see this. The desire to share my story and the stories of other students regarding the reality of the U.S. History paper, a challenging but fulfilling facet of the junior experience, has fueled a recent SLAB initiative to make a promotional video for the U.S. History paper with appearances from senior students, librarians, and history faculty. The video is intended to ease unnecessary stress and anxiety for the junior class while showcasing the immense benefits garnered from the essay writing process. We are planning on creating the video in the coming term!
