This honors seminar met on Thursdays from 3:30-6:30 in the evening. The class only had about 20 people in it, which made it easier to facilitate discussion and cover topics in greater depth than had it been a lecture class. We talked about many topics, such as risk factors, protective factors, and specific children who committed unspeakable acts of violence. The class also traveled and got to take a tour of Hillcrest, a juvenile residence center for delinquent children. I was unable to attend this trip as I was out of the country, but I heard a lot about it from my friends and it sounded like an interesting experience. This course definitely exceeded my expectations. I had the opportunity to build friendships with other students from Honors and learn more about a topic I find disturbing yet interesting. Having this experience meant a lot to me because I got to connect with other people, old friends and new classmates. I liked hearing about the science behind kids who kill and the attempts to rehabilitate them. Overall, this experience meant a lot to me personally and I am excited to find ways to apply my knowledge.
