Even though some of my gen ed credits were received from transfer credits I took before coming to Longwood, the course that I have taken have shown me a great deal or skills that I will continue to use throughout my time at Longwood. My goals mainly involved improving on my writing skills and learn different perspectives. In terms of perspectives, I have learned how to work in groups by discussing course material and absorbing the point of view of each person participating in group discussion. When it comes to writing, I have adapted my skills due to different professor requirements for papers in each course I’ve taken. Adapting to different paper length and discussing various subjects in specific detail that gets right to the point is the major takeaway I have received. In the long run, I hope that these skills will improve, especially when it comes to the specific details of the material I study.
