    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    As a freshman, I thought that this class was such a good introduction into psychology. The professor was amazing, he was so open about his life experiences and we could ask him about anything. He was really warm, empathetic, and a great listener. He made sure that each student felt heard, was respected, and loved. He also was very engaging and knowledgeable about this field of study. In that class, we were treated as equals and encouraged to do well together. At times, we broke off into groups to discuss personal opinions on certain issues and then shared them with the class. We also did a lot of journaling and essay writing since the course was on personal development. We went over awesome books like “The Road Less Traveled” and “A Man’s Search For Meaning”, which were really powerful and impacting reads. That class felt like it went by too fast each time because it was so fun and interesting. We covered a lot, but I definitely learned a lot in that class and am glad that I took it because it helped shape me into more of the person that I am today.

    Course highlights:

    Since it was so long ago, it is difficult for me to remember specifics, but I know that I definitely learned a lot in this course. I remember learning better relational skills and ways to initiate healthy conversations. For example, when caught in a disagreement with someone, it is better to use more "I" statements ("I'm feeling unloved and I feel the need to be taken care of more ") rather than "you" statements ("You're so insensitive, you shouldn't have done what you did to me"). "I" statements come across more positively and in less of an attacking way. It’s a helpful tool to remember so that you don’t get stuck on blaming or lashing-out on another person. In this course, I also learned the importance of delaying gratification. In our culture today, we all have become accustomed to things working instantly. Whether it be computers, phones, amazon purchases, food, etc., we want it as soon as possible. Our consumeristic and technological society has become so soaked with instant gratification, that when our webpage doesn’t load in three seconds, we get frustrated at our device and get annoyed at how slow it’s going. With instant gratification comes a lack of patience, but with delayed gratification, one has better self-control, patience, and a better sense of rewards in the end. Another thing I learned was that “love is as love does”. This is such a profound statement because love isn’t just a feeling, it is an action too. And in order to love others better, what we do needs to come from a place of choosing to put the other person first. Love requires selflessness and is ultimately a choice.

    Advice for students:

    I would let other students know that they can expect to let their guard down and should be willing to learn how to learn. The transition from high school to college can be stressful enough for a student, but when you take an awesome course like this one, you get a better sense of what college is supposed to be like and how you can work on growing yourself. You are expected to do all the work, obviously, but great professors really do make the biggest impact. I believe that I had such an amazing experience taking this class because my character, confidence, and self-esteem were all built up from all the encouragement given, instead of being torn down from intimidation and strictness. I would also encourage other students to study the material given, go to class, pay attention in class, and complete the essays with as much reflection as possible so that you get the most out of the course.
