This course taught me a lot about being responsible for my actions as well as taking responsibility for wrong doing. I will definitely be taking what I learned an applying to my future job after Graduation. What I learned most was how to make proper decisions regarding right and wrong actions.
This class taught me to harness my known knowledge of public speaking and combine it with new information to become a better student. This course showed me how to capture an audience’s attention, properly address a call to action, and adjust to my audience’s needs. I spoke about many topics from an informative speech on how to ski to giving a persuasive speech about Golden Retrievers! I learned a lot about myself from this class and conquered the “fear” of public speaking.
My Environmental Science Class challenged me in ways I had never been challenged before. I have never taken a class similar to this; it was broken up into one class with two separate labs for those in honors and the other section for those not enrolled in honors. I was able to learn about the Earth’s environmental services while also working in groups like I have never had to do before. Although tough, it has definitely prepared me for future endeavors.
Civitae brought a new an interesting perspective into my life in the classroom. Personally, I believe I have grown tremendously in the classroom due to these courses, as well as the honors courses, because of the different approach the professors take within the classroom. I am extremely grateful for coming to Longwood and experiencing the new, intriguing courses that taught me how to deal with difficult situations, time management, and how to tolerate classes that I don’t particularly love. Civitae has made me a well-rounded student and I am extremely prepared for my upcoming years as a Lancer.
Dear Senior Self,
I hope that you have maintained your grades throughout college! I am so excited for the future and I am busting my butt and paying a lot of money in order to prosper in the future. I hope your first job out of school is enjoyable, but any job will do! I hope college was everything you had hoped for, and that you’re ready to see what else life has to offer. My goals for later include getting a job directly out of school and being involved in my community through work and school. Good luck in the real world.
