Theories Applied

It’s a weird concept for me to learn how to be a better leader while studying leadership theories. Before taking LDR 200L, I would have thought that the only way I could become a better leader was though experience and action. I shouldn’t have to sit in a classroom and listen to classmates do a presentation…

LDR 200L

This three hour class, required for LAS protocol, is unlike any class I’ve ever taken before. The challenges I’ve faced there have not been as simple as trying to complete my homework on time or speaking in front of a class of about 45 students. It’s so much more. I’ve had to think deeper than…

Survival Tips for HST 110

I was terrified that I would step in front of a class of 20 people and choke, therefore, resulting in…

Psychology

Taught by Dr. Matthew Prewett, PSY 100 was an interesting and beneficial course that I will be able to apply to my life. Although this course is not required for my major it will help me to complete my minor in Leadership. The information I have learned for it will come in handy throughout the…
