The Comfort Zone

More quotes from mid-semester evaluations of ExCollege courses…

“When I tell people about what I have learned and how I am applying the class to my life, they are shocked and impressed.”

“For me personally, the assignments (have been most beneficial) because they force me to practice the skills independently and figure things out on my own.”

“The in-class exercises…definitely push me out of my normal comfort zone.”

What College Should Be

It’s break for Tufts undergrads, so it’s pretty quiet here at 95 Talbot. I’m catching up on some work, including reading the mid-semester evaluations that students filled out in their ExCollege courses. Thought I’d share some of the highlights…

“Best (course) since being at Tufts…informative, stimulating, entertaining. Feels like this is what college should be like.”

“I really like this class. I look forward to it almost as much as my weekends. :)”

“I also enjoy the articles we read — they are so compelling and seeing each others’ responses on Blackboard is interesting.”

“The subjects discussed are interesting, relevant, and extremely important to all American citizens. I am thrilled by the in-depth readings, lectures and debates on these subjects.”
