A Few Words from the Editors
We were overwhelmingly impressed and pleased at the high number of submissions we received from undergrads this year! It's truly incredible that so many students went the extra mile to submit these papers, particularly those who worked tirelessly to complete their final year here at UNH prior to stepping out into the post-college world.
While each student offers a unique and invaluable contribution to our academic community, we feel compelled to specifically acknowledge those who submitted to Perspectives. Indeed, it can be just as scary as it is rewarding to make public one's own work for the world to see. We want to thank each and every one of those students who submitted—thank you for embracing this very vulnerable endeavor so that we could enjoy your tremendously impressive papers!
Each of these submissions is thoughtful, analytical, relevant, and well-written. We're proud to present their hard work for you to enjoy, and we can't wait to see what the future holds for these accomplished academics.
Onward and upward!
