This past spring semester was very busy, but also really rewarding and fun! For the Thematic Option program I’m in, I took a really interesting class called Aural Culture.

Hi everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve made my last blog post, hasn’t it? Now that it’s winter break, I have time to tell you a bit about one of the most rewarding things I’ve done this past semester: being an SI leader. For those of you who don’t know, Supplemental Instruction (or SI) [...]
