"The night was filled with laughter, but Dr. Brooks was very serious when he answered my question. I asked him to share some of the biggest challenges that he faces while working with college students. He said that our generation of college students are technologically savvy, immensely driven, and we also have "helicopter" parents. Students of my generation are unable to manage crises, because our parents have dealt with them for us all of our lives. So he works with students on a day-to-day basis on these types of issues."

"One thing that Shawn talked about that really hit home for me was the idea that in order to explore new things one has to step outside their comfort zones. I can attest to this because I can see those traits in myself and all of the people that I have been surrounded by in my life."

"Shawn made it a point to let us know to never miss a Professor Miller class."

"Dinner was very enjoyable! I liked how Dr. Brooks provided questions for us all to answer. I especially liked hearing the faculty, staff, and Dr. Brook's answers; it was wonderful to get their perspective on life at Thiel."
