The last thing that challenged me was getting to know about the other races and how they have completely different views that I myself. I was never a person to even grasp anyone’s view other than myself, but this class has helped me become better at listening
From this class I learned that social work is the route I want to take in life. I loved the lesson we learned on how to not take the day home and to leave it in a tree and pick it up on the way back to work. I definitely will be using that one.

Of these courses, the field experience course is the one I have looked forward to since I declared my major because it is the pedagogy of my social work education.

This week was a very good presentation. It was very relatable and helped me get a better picture of what applying to coop will be like. It was cool to hear David`s perspective because he is a nursing major. Before going to this lecture I had wished that I had been spring/summer coop. However, David brought up a good point saying that most colleges will be office for summer break looking for interships at that time.
Honestly I like writing and reading and hearing people’s take on a text. This class, which was filled with all of that, however I did not like and my attitude clearly reflected that.

Being able to connect with the community and with my peers will be a valuable and unforgettable experience.

Getting to me mentored by people who have done what I want to do will be enriching, it’ll be an experience that ill cherish forever. Creating long lasting friendships with people who have similar interest.
I just hope that I am able to keep up and stay with this group of individuals because I am not sure I would be as successful if it weren’t for the bond we have developed these past nine weeks. I once heard some of the best friendships you will ever have will be made in nursing school and I can definitely see that already with a few.

This quarter has been a rollercoaster of emotions, mostly good, and I look forward to what next quarter brings. Hopefully my brain can hold all this information, I feel like it grows 2 sizes every week!

I entered Wabash College not exactly sure what to expect; I knew it was going to be different, but I also knew that with change I wanted to keep an open mind that was ready to learn and grow. Freshman tutorial and especially enduring questions are two classes that have pushed my boundaries as a person, forcing me to question core beliefs and ideas that seemed previously engrained in my mind.
