Another requirement for my Leader Advancement Scholarship and Leadership minor is HDF 110 Oppression: Roots and Impact. This class was meant to examine the roots and impact of different forms of oppression within a social context. This topic has been fairly new to me ever since I started college.

I was at Program Board's meeting the next week. I grew so close to the Executive Board and members so quickly I really felt like I found my place on... Continue Reading →


The bigger and badder LDR 100; LDR 200. This was the second course I've taken with my LAS cohort of the year and yes it has leadership written all over it. The goal of this course was to give us a better understanding of theoretical, philosophical, and conceptual foundations of leadership. OR, for a less... Continue Reading →


I not going to lie I wasn't too 'fired up' for a history class but now that I am just weeks away from completing the course I can say that it was definitely beneficial (I guess the advisors know what they're doing). The course was very similar to the 'American History' class we all took... Continue Reading →
