Advanced Magazine Writing students and Prof. Marino on the steps of Franklin Hall, Spring 2022

The students are grateful to everyone in the Akron resettlement community who shared their knowledge, time and experiences with them.

The web editor was Grace Christopher.

Sean Blevins, Trista Bowser, Brie Camp, Brianna Canada, Hannah Davis, Anthony Elder, London Green, Kelly Krabill, Andrew Kuder, Alencia Lang, Morgan McGrath, Megan McSweeney, Jimmy Oswald, Catie Pusateri and Halena Sepulveda
