One reason I knew I wanted to join the Eastern Michigan University Honors College (EMU HC) was because I would be allowed to make a film for my Honors Senior Thesis Project. Of course, joining the Honors College would help me to widen my academic boundaries and surround me with other students who were as passionate about succeeding both in the classroom and out as I was. However, in the end, I knew that with all of the hard work I would put in throughout my entire college career, whether it was in honors or non-honors classes, in film courses or in general education courses, that same hard work would cumulate in a film project that would be made of my blood, sweat, and tears – figuratively, I hoped – that I will have worked on for close to a year, if not longer.
