CAS 110: Integrating Seminar (Introduction to the University):
Taking CAS 110 has helped me big time transitioning into college life and updating me on things I had no idea existed. I’m actually glad I took the class because without it I would be lost right now and probably have no motivation to stay in college. I think all freshmen should have a class like this. Great people, ono grindz, good fun. Thank you Gary, Barbara and Lynn. I really appreciate everything I’ve gotten from this course.
UNIV 327 WI/O: Metacognitive Strategies:
…this class has definitely strengthened how I go about my week, whether it has to do with schoolwork or just being productive in general. Many things that I have been very weak in have improved tons from new strategies that I learned from UNIV 327.
UNIV 421 WI/E: PASSAGE (Adventures on the Path to Becoming an Adult)
Passage is an interactive course, which develops relationships with peers, mentors and “elders”. The course includes personal interaction, creative group projects and discussion sessions with faculty and community elders. Focus will also be given to developing students into mentors for incoming SSS students. (Offered Summer Session II as WI)
I did kind of get to see what it was like to be a mentor by taking charge at the orientation and taking the freshman around to tour the campus. What I enjoyed most about the class this summer were the lessons and discussions we went over and how they applied to me and my life. Writing in a journal was something I hadn’t done for a while. I liked how we talked about traditions and rites of passages and related them to our lives. It led to personal discussions and self evaluation about who am I really.
