“I have never been so consistently engaged in one class. The more I learned in 
this course, the more I wanted to work on becoming my best self. In 5 semesters,
this has been the only class I’ve found long term value in. This is not a class where
I simply work hard to do good on the final and then forget 95%. I’ve worked hard to
actually APPLY the material, not just LEARN it. This should be a required class for
all freshman. I am excited for my wife to take this course.” (Adam S.,  Spring 2014)
