    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The course is brutally difficult and a lot of work. The graders are also extremely harsh. The best thing you can do is continuously work ahead on everything you do.

    Course highlights:

    What I learnt was how to handle a large course-load and how to manage stress better.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Only take it if you are really determined to succeed

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Honors Colloquium was unlike any class I've ever experienced. Each year there is a different topic of interest and ours was the refugee crisis. We had lectures once a week with a different guest speaker for each lecture. After lecture, we separated into breakout groups that coincided with our final project. I was in the Public Relations group and we were in charge of disseminating information about the refugee crisis occurring in Syria as well as sending out press releases to get news stations to come to our end-of-the-semester event where we brought refugee children to the UNF campus and provided activities, games, and food for them.

    Course highlights:

    One of the most rewarding aspects of the course was that a press release I wrote convinced a local Jacksonville news station to come to our event and air a story about it on TV. In addition, each lecture was fascinating and all of the guest speakers were brilliant. We discussed different topics each week such as immigration, family history, the election, and white privilege. We even did a hands-on simulation of refugee families living in America. We were given fake money, a budget, and a list of necessities we needed to pay for. It really opened my eyes to the harsh reality these people face everyday. Overall, this course broadened my perspective on issues I had never even thought about and most importantly, this course taught me empathy.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to do a lot of hands-on activities and group work. Read every single book that is assigned to you because the tests and quizzes are not easy unless you have a deep understanding of the material. This class takes up a considerable amount of time outside of class, but you will most likely enjoy it because it is not your typical boring homework. Try to create friendships with your group members because you will have to communicate with them often. Most of all, don't be afraid to go outside your comfort zone!
