Student experiences

"This course was amazing; I wish it could have lasted longer. I learned so much about how to get my point across. Also, the entire class became friends."
"This was easily one of the best experiences of my life. I gained a broader way of thinking, since my class pushed us to question our assumptions. I also gained some college-life experience in a very independent environment and many good friends, who I can now go to for help and advice."
