“It was truly the experience of a lifetime and I can't imagine a better one for someone interested in teaching and education. Not only did being in rural Mississippi put me out of my comfort zone, but the Freedom Project itself gave me an incredible amount of freedom to challenge any preconceived notions I had about the failings of America's public education system. It impressed upon me the urgency of this battle we are currently fighting in this country against educational inequality." - Georgiana Smyser '11
“At Dartmouth, conversations on entering the real world center around which medical, law, or business school to attend or which firm to pick. It all seemed so far away. It was part of a comfortable life, but I was glad that I was having the experience as a housing counselor. I was glad that I was getting a taste of reality.” - Jung Kim '10
