Which Carleton classes have been your favorites? Why?
Hands down, Geology in the Field. I was loath to take the class, thinking rocks were boring, stagnant, and uninteresting. After taking the class, I think rocks are the coolest things ever (right up with Downton Abbey, chocolate chip cookies, and puppies) and our class is still very close; we enjoy reminiscing about falling into mud pits, finding fossils, and having dance parties during lab. Bottom line, geology rocks!
Arabic here has been phenomenal. It’s one of those things, like acting, that I just kind of picked up. “This seems kind of applicable,” you know? I've kept up with it ever since. The professors and language programs are great here. I’ve heard from other people in other languages that they’re so engaged and so much more thoughtful than at classes in bigger settings and bigger universities.
