What has been your favorite class at COA? Why?
Introduction to Keyboard/Piano. Music is one of my interests and I always wanted to learn how to play at least one instrument. I specifically love piano, but I had never learned how to play it until I took the class. Because of that, all I was learning in class was new, interesting, and fun!

What was your favorite lesson/lecture/discussion/project at COA? Why?
Experiential Learning Assignment — a project that every student had to do in my Anthropology of Health and Illness class. I chose to go into the MDI Hospital's Emergency Room and observe what usually goes on/shadow nurses as they attended to patients. Because I am interested in Medical Sciences, this project was a fit for me as I got a bit of an experience of what physicians/nurses do, how patients are taken care, and overall relationship between physicians, nurses, and patients.
