“Wheelock has changed my perspective on all forms of diversity. I am so glad that I have had the experiences I’ve had and met the people I have to have important discussions surrounding race, class, gender, and other social categories.”

Here you will find voices that did not fit into any of the dominant subcateogories because they either intersected a lot of the themes, or they brought something entirely new to the discussion. Most of the abstract poetry pieces are found here, as well.
