Art History is a course which combines the historic context from each distinctive era with each style of artist expression. It helps me understand modern art better by analysing them from a perspective of categorising according to context. The course teaches me how to better appreciate modern art, which is such a complex phenomenon to be truly understood academically.
One thing I wish I did was attend more Minerva events. I should totally take advantage of all of their good offerings!
Another thing I wish I did was attend more sporting events besides the big ones like hockey. I should support my fellow classmates and friends in their athletic endeavors.
I wish I participated in more arts events. I'm not very talented in the arts but I could attend more plays or art shows.
On the topic of art, I would enjoy an arts and crafts night at a Minerva to show off some creativity.
Being a part of the track and field team has been my most significant experience while at Union. Having a group of people who are just as dedicated and motivated as I am has been amazing. The friends I made playing sports in high school are my best friends for life, and I am so glad that I was able to continue to make new friends through a love of track. If I were to visit a high school to talk about college life, I would encourage the students to get involved in anything and everything that interests them. If they can, join a sports team or put together an intramural team.
An experience I've had that has really made me excited about choosing Union is my Scholars Preceptorial course. In this course, our professor has brought in two of the authors of the books we've read to come speak to us. Both of these authors were Union grads. Its inspired me to see what one can do with a Union degree and it's really cool to meet the people who have written works that you've really enjoyed. We've met them in an intimate setting so I've been able to ask specific questions that gave me useful advice.
