FallOn CampusFavorite Class: HIST 2: #EverythingHasAHistory: Understanding America Today
This history class is dedicated to investigating the history behind current events. In this term, we looked at the history behind immigration, Silicon Valley, and affirmative action. And in the final weeks of the term, we were able to choose what we wanted to learn about, and we chose to look at the history of impeachment. It is a very cool class with great class discussions. I would highly recommend!
WinterOn CampusFavorite Class: COSC 1: Introduction to Programming and Computation
COSC 1 is an intro to Computer Science course. I had never taken a CS course, so learning the new Python language was definitely tough! Even so, I learned so much about how to code, and the help provided by TAs and the professors is invaluable in this course!
This was the first class I ever took in the African and African American Studies and Religion Department. It opened my eyes to the various ways African Americans in the Jim Crow era survived when the world was stacked up against them. I would highly recommend!
FallOn-Campus!Favorite Class: CRWT 10: Introduction to Fiction
This was my first creative writing class ever! It was great to create new works and get feedback from my classmates and my professor.
WinterOn-Campus!Favorite Class: HIST 45: Early Modern Europe 1300-1650
An interesting class where we focused on the spread of literature during this time period. Also one of my smallest classes; only five other classmates!
SpringOn-Campus!Favorite Class: CRWT 20: Intermediate Fiction I
Another Creative Writing course! I wonder if I am doing something with that with my major :)
FallLondon!Favorite Class: Creative Writing Prose: The Short Story
This class was a creative writing class, and it gave me a lot of insight into what I as an author should want my readers to do when they confront the piece. It was an amazing class, and it was so cool to be able to take it in London!
WinterOn-CampusFavorite Class: REL 34: Christianity and Conversion in the Northern World: Vikings, Celts, and Anglo-Saxons
My desire to learn about religion and history was thoroughly fulfilled in this class, where we looked at the various Christian conversions in different European areas. I learned a lot, and I really loved the prof's lectures!
I'm not taking any classes this term! Instead, I am doing a fellowship through the Leslie Center for Humanities, where I am writing an interconnected short story collection set in an evangelical church youth group.
Coming Back to Campus to Snowball Fights and Friends
I am now settling into campus life again. And what better way to do this than attending the famous snowball fight?
