There is no experience more rewarding for our faculty and staff, and none more enriching for our current students, than to have an NSA alumnus return to our campus to share their successes after graduation.
One of our graduates, Jordan R., recently reached out to NSA requesting an opportunity to teach a workshop for our students.
After graduating from NSA in 2008, Jordan went on become a nationally-placed slam poet and battle rapper. His performance of his slam poem “Bullies” won third place at the national Slam Poetry competition in Berkeley. And even more impressive, Jordan is now completing a double honor’s major in English from the University of California Davis!
When we asked Jordan why he had returned, we heard our favorite answer: “I wanted to give back.”
