The essays below are written by students from Professor Axelrod's Expository Writing class. Students were asked, for extra credit, to write a short essay on how they face the predicament of being a college student in today's economy. Their voices form a compelling complement to Professor Axelrod's Opinion piece in The Boston Globe, especially as neither the Professor nor the students read each other's work before writing their own.
