What students are saying about Phoenix:
Why I love Phoenix:
What is there not to love? Every other Thursday afternoon, a group of students get to bond over something they are so passionate about. Creative juices flowing, yummy munchkins munching; releasing our inner most thoughts on the keys of the keyboard. Typing away, zoning everything else out, our minds are focused on making whatever we are writing, the most creative and the best piece we have ever written. Doing what we love and enjoy the most, getting lost in ones words and imagination is what occurs in the world of Phoenix.
--Noor Nanda, Senior and member since 2011
Why I Love Phoenix
Writing can open doors to new outlets that a person may have never discovered about himself otherwise; creativity lies dormant in the hearts of everyone, but it takes a writer to take the confusing waltz of ideas in his head and turn them into breathing, tangible works of art. I think that, in Phoenix, we’re able to better discover and explore the many different melodies in ourselves that let us write creatively. Many perceive writing as being a concrete form with no room for liberality, but through the creative writing we do in Phoenix, I’ve learned how to create my own chords to represent myself through my writing. To me, Phoenix represents a hospice that relieves my stress, a place where I can just weave together my thoughts on a clean, blank page with endless possibilities.
