Penn State DuBois Student's Work Makes Best of Freshman Writing

9/7/2011 —

An essay by Penn State DuBois student Nick Bogacki appears in this year's edition of Best of Freshman Writing.  The publication is released annually by Penn State, and features only the very best examples of writing by freshman across all of the university, in three specific English courses.  Faculty who teach these courses must submit their students' work for consideration in the publication.


Bogacki's essay is titled, "I Will Do What My Mother Has Done", is a tale of a parent's devotion and the lasting impact it has had on her children.  Bogacki's real-life account of his own upbringing cites examples of how his mother constantly put him and his siblings first.  He explains that her dedication has inspired him to be the best, most devoted parent he can be when he eventually has his own family.


"Nick has written a beautifully organized and touching tribute to his mother," said Richard Kopley, Bogacki's English professor. 


Copies of Best of Freshman Writing are available at Penn State Book Store locations, or online at www2. hn. psu. edu/ faculty/jmanis/bof.htm
