Class description

Students in this AWESOME class will be expected to learn more about their community and their surroundings here at the UW (i.e. living situations, hang out spots, school clubs and other opportunities on campus). This class will basically help students adjust to campus life here at the UW...AND on top of that, you will get to meet some COOL people in the process as well.

Student learning goals

General method of instruction

Students in this class will meet once a week for about an hour. Classes will basically teach students about "campus" life here at the UW and other opportunities that would benefit students in this class. Class meetings will be FUN and informative and being your instructor for this course, I will make CLASS a great and fun time for you guys! WOO HOO! Excitement indeed!

Recommended preparation

Come in with an open mind and a positive attitude. That's all I ask of the students.

Class assignments and grading

For the most part, assignments will be assigned weekly...however these assignments will NOT be hard at all. They basically consist of weekly written "reflections" (which will be SHORT by the way) or other activities pertaining to the weeks lesson. More of this will be discussed once class gets going! WOO HOO!

Grades will be assigned based on class participation and homework. This is a No Credit/Credit class, so if you are on top of the class assignments, you SHOULD be fine.


The information above is intended to be helpful in choosing courses. Because the instructor may further develop his/her plans for this course, its characteristics are subject to change without notice. In most cases, the official course syllabus will be distributed on the first day of class.
