Senior Edwin Rosales, a first-generation college student who emigrated from Guatemala with his parents when he was a child, drew on his own family stories and extensive research to write not one but two senior theses. The first, an original collection of short stories, “The Art of Stones,” satisfied the thesis requirements for his major in English and certificate in creative writing. He also wrote a play, “Spring on Fire: A Guatemalan Story,” for his certificates in theater and Latin American studies.
