QuickBIC is the BIC student blog, updated with a variety of posts each week. Ada Zhang recently posted a tribute to Dr. Sarah Walden, one of the BIC professors who has made a difference in her life. Ada writes:
“Great teachers aren’t hard to come by at Baylor. I could write an ode to any one of them.

“Dr. Walden encouraged those shy freshmen to wield the power of rhetoric — because, she told us, our ideas matter, because words are free and we are free to use them.
“And look at me now! Going on and on and on about my ideas 24/7. It’s like a disease, really. I can’t help it.” [read the full post at the QuickBIC blog]
