    During my time in Dr. Kennedy 's ENG 111 class, I have been pushed way beyond my limits of capabilities. Before in high school, I had no idea what a rhetorical analysis was.

But there wasn 't much need for detail. But nevertheless, without my experience here at RCC, I would have never known the amount…
