ReVisions: Best Student Essays of UNC Pembroke

The staff at ReVisions believe in the importance of acknowledging quality student work produced in undergraduate classes. As all writers know, writing consumes a writer’s time. It frustrates and disturbs. But as the best writers know, this is how it should be. When we compose essays, we compose ourselves into the worlds in which we live, discovering and constructing knowledge, negotiating ideas, and creating meaning. Putting pen to paper or finger to keyboard commits a writer to a difficult journey, but this journey excites, enlightens, and ultimately takes both writer and reader into the sometimes uncharted, often magical territory of ideas.ReVisions offers you the chance to take wonderful journeys, to step into the ideas of other people, and to learn something about yourself along the way.

We are sure that our colleagues would agree that the existence of a stimulating, productive classroom depends upon the exchange of knowledge and ideas, and the students at UNCP produce powerful pieces of writing every day as a result of these exchanges. But the classroom cannot function as an isolated entity. The ideas generated in one classroom must make their way into other classrooms, into the university at large, and, ultimately, into everyday life. These essays represent the initial departure of ideas from the classroom, and we are delighted to share them with you.
