A Few Words from the Editors

Thank you to all who submitted their work this year. We appreciate the dedication and detail evident in each submission and applaud the time, effort, and hard work of each student who submitted their work. The nature of sociology is so vast and allows for an array of topics to be examined and explored, which is clear in the diverse submissions we received.


A special thank you to the Sociology faculty and Graduate Editors, Meghan Cormier-O’Leary and Jonni Norman, for all of their help and support, and thank you and congratulations to all graduated seniors who submitted their work.
