-- From Grad Student Alex Matsuo: "Today was a GREAT day. Suzan-Lori Parks was so amazing and inspiring!"

-- From alumni Patrick Kelly: "Suzan-Lori Parks was so inspiring last night, I am now planning on spending some of my weekend trip to Joshua Tree meditating on my art :-)"
-- From a lower-division student in my 100-level class: "Wow. What can i say except what an inspirational human being. I didn't know anything about this woman before going to the Don Powell theatre, and leaving I knew a lot about her, and even more about myself."
