This honors seminar met on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 2:35 to 3:25 in the afternoon. There were only twelve people in the class, so our discussions were very in-depth and we got to hear the opinions of everybody in the class. Throughout the semester, studied the seven societal currents: media, work, family, democracy, belief system, education, and leisure. We did readings on each topic and then picked one on which to write. I got to work with one of my roommates and write on media, which was awesome because I got to study the history of the industry I would like to join. I got to collaborate with one of my media professors and use material from the class in my paper, which helped me in both classes. The course seemed intimidating at first, but exceeded my expectations. Having this experience meant a lot to me because I got to connect with my professor and work on improving my writing. It made me a much better analytical thinker and writer. The final paper was broken up into segments, which made it much easier to write overall. I liked that I had the opportunity to put enough focus on each individual section of the paper.
