    Malvern's Bio:
    I have heard that the average human being uses 10% of their brain's potential. Whether that's true or not, this blog is a mirror of at least part of my brain's functionality and activity. It is an outlet through which I share my experiences and escapades here at CSS. I hope that in between the mixed metaphors and rambling in my posts, you find something valuable. I have an overwhelming interest learning new things and expanding my horizons (which is why I am here). Wait, I just lost my train of thought... Welcome to my 'Pensieve' ~ thinking out loud..

Classes that do not feel like classes

Last year, I was excited about taking a Dignitas class that had a focus on Dignity and Consumption (Section 11 or D. Vosen’s class). I always looked forward to the discussions we had in that class … never looked forward to writing the papers though. I loved it when we did service learning and volunteering outside the classroom and came back to the classroom to learn about sustainability, economics, chemistry, culture, systems around the world, and much more. We also created some Wikipedia pages where we compiled our group projects each week and learned what other groups were doing as well. We listened to theme songs, watched videos and took a geography test as part of our final exam. I also made some good friend from the class, which I advise anyone in a class with one or more people besides you to do!

Dignitas gave me an opportunity to learn something I was passionate about – sustainability- and learn from a great teacher. D.Vo’s section is one kind of a class that does not really feel like a class in the sense that there’s just more going on to keep you on your toes and engaged throughout the learning process. I would retake the class again and again if I went back in time and were to choose my classes again.
