All of my classes that I take normally are fairly interesting at this point of my college career. I am almost done with my major as a sociology major. Some professors while in college have definitely made some of my classes that I have taken a lot more interesting then others. I am really a […]

For this blog post, I will opt to answer both questions. When it comes to this class, I must first say that I do love this class because, as like other sociology courses, it challenges sociological theories and deals with sensitive issues that most people are afraid to confront. I really enjoyed the class this […]

I am definately not a morning person. That would explain why I fall asleep in most of my morning classes but I do try to stay awake and attentive (redbull helps). Although I find many classes boring I never use that as an excuse not to go. I am only absent if something interfered with […]

Extra Credit…. Why other students or I dont show up to class..

May 21st, 2011 · 1 Comment

Sociology is my major, and I enjoy learning about it. But this was the first class to be honest that had me confused most of the time. I’m usually raising my hand and participate in class but I can’t point to what was wrong. But I did still manage to go to class I must […]

the college business

May 20th, 2011 · 1 Comment

Recently, I’ve been seeing and realizing that everything in this day and age is a business. Unfortunately, this has started to include schools. In sports, players are always questioned on why to go to teams where they offer the most money. And other teams are questioned as to why they don’t pay the big bucks […]

College Education

May 20th, 2011 · 4 Comments

The findings about the quality of college education in this NYT article by Arum and Roska, were quite surprising to me. I suddenly feel in the minority of college students who actually notice a difference in my writing skills, critical thinking abilities, and simply my view of the world, from my freshman year to now, […]

I normally don’t miss classes often, but if I do it’s either I have to take care of something important (family) or I wake up too late or I’m sick. I really think its disrespectful to walk into class extremely late (30 mins-1 hr into class), so it doesn’t disturb the class or professor, plus […]

Why I do not come to class

May 19th, 2011 · 2 Comments

Although I find sociology very interesting, and am actually majoring in it, sometimes it is very hard for me to focus in class. I thought your powerpoints were interesting and full of useful information, but I also found your lectures to be very long and wordy. Things do not need to be repeated or reiterated […]

The days that I do not come to class it is either because I am sick or because I know I won’t be able to stay awake during lecture. Throughout college I have found that I don’t learn during lecture. I don’t absorb any material in any of my classes during lecture, so I tend […]
