Fall semester started final week and 1000’s of scholars attended their firstclass.
“There’s all the time a way of power and pleasure that comes with the primary week of sophistication,” stated Nancy E. Hill, Charles Bigelow Professor of Schooling. “There’s a lot enthusiasm about what the yr forward holds, hopes and goals that college students have about their new yr. As a college member I give it some thought as effectively — what do I hope to perform within the yr forward?”
Hill is instructing “#Adulting: Social Science Views on the Transition to Maturity,” a first-year seminar about what it means to be an grownup, how society defines maturity, and the way these markers could look completely different for various adolescents.
“It’s a enjoyable class to show as a result of the scholars are in the course of it,” Hill stated. “It’s only a enjoyable means to consider that first yr in School and it offers them a possibility to find out about theories and analysis, but additionally do self-reflection.”
