As my first year here at Duquesne is coming to a close in less than a couple of months, I have learned a lot about myself and the Duquesne community. College is indeed a time for exploring one’s academic interests. The fact that one is in a Liberal Arts college adds to this notion even more. For example, last semester, I took a class called Rock and Roll History. That was extremely awesome! (and even cited as the best college class of 2011 by the Pittsburgh City Paper). Being in the liberal arts college not only encourages this, but fosters it as well. Being in the honors college meant that I wasn’t part of one of the college’s many learning communities, but I have heard tremendous things about these from my peers. Many found that taking certain classes with a core group of students interested in the same broad subject proved to provide a great learning experience, both academically and socially. It has been a great first year here at Duquesne, and I look forward to three more great years with the liberal arts community, and the college as a whole.
Some Upcoming Events for the week:
This panel features 4 speakers, including the president of Consol Energy, and Duquesne’s political science department’s very own Dr. Kent Moors, talking about their various views on the regulation and drilling of Marcellus Shale. Should be a very interesting panel for anyone interested in current issues, especially relevant to this area.
Tuesday, March 13, 2012; 4:00 PM; Power Center Ballroom
This Symposium features 11 speakers from all over the country specializing in various aspects of theology offering their views on missiology. Seems to be a very interesting day for anyone interested in theology.
