Review for Hands Across the Sea, Inc., Boston, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Hands Across the Sea delivers modern, high-quality books to libraries and reading centers on many Caribbean islands. The impact on the children is a wonder to behold. Having access to exciting books is a key ingredient in supporting and improving literacy. Working with Hands Across the Sea, my wife and I have volunteered to help create inviting library and reading center spaces in schools on the island of Dominica.

Review for Michigan State University - Lyman Briggs College, East Lansing, MI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Lyman Briggs College provides a unique experience to science and math undergraduates. I see several key advantages of the program: 1. As a residential college, Briggs provides a sense of community and support to students who might otherwise be overwhelmed in a large state university. 2. Professors for the Briggs programs are selected because they are truly interested in teaching undergraduates. So many times a large research universities, undergraduates are treated as a necessary nuisance. At Briggs, I never felt second class to graduate students or research projects. 3. The Briggs program is designed to encourage science and math majors to broaden their intellectual horizons, and to make room in their class schedules for humanities, social sciences, art, and all of the other wonderful disciplines that highly-focused science majors sometimes miss out on.
