LEARNING TO READ IS SOMETHING THAT MOST COLLEGE
STUDENTS TAKE FOR GRANTED. I TRY TO DO MY PART TO
HELP THESE GREAT KIDS ACHIEVE, SO HOPEFULLY SOMEDAY THEY
WILL BE IN OUR POSITION AND WANT TO DO THE SAME THING.
- Nicholas Orlowski, America Reads tutor
s college students, we struggle to fathom what
an illiterate life would be like. We can't imagine
the cold, random life where the only difference
between Taco Bell and Wendy's is the picture
of "Wendy". LSA sophomore Nicholas Orlowski, on the
other hand, finds it easier than most - not because he is
illiterate, but because he tutors underprivileged children
who struggle with reading. He balances his time between Y
four children at Green Baxter Court near North Campus, a
public housing site for low-income families, tutoring for the r .
America Reads program out of the Edward Ginsberg Center
for Community Service and Learning. Orlowski has a moral
disdain for reading tests, team meetings and paychecks -
none of these mean as much to him as the children he is
tutoring. In fact, he says, tutoring has been the most
rewarding aspect of his college experience.
