“People think that stories are shaped by people. In fact, it's the other way around.”
Terry Prattchet, from Witches Abroad
"FRC allowed me the opportunity to get one on one instruction with my professors and has helped me hone skills I will need to pursue a career in English. The English department has helped me become a part of the campus community and in each class my teachers have been supportive and helped me grow as a scholar in my field. I have made lasting friendships with like-minded individuals from my major and am so happy I attended this school as my first step into higher education."
~ Angelina Wilson, English
