Overwhelmed by large classes as an incoming freshman?  What if I told you that you can take a ten person seminar class. Yes, you heard me a ten person class in college, there is such a thing! Did I also mention that this class has no tests or exams and meets only twice a week!

My Experience

My experience in SOC205 was unforgettable. My small class turned into a homebase for me. Every time I had the class I got excited to talk to my peers about non related class material as well as class material. SOC205 turned into an outlet and was a comfort for me during my first year of college.
