I like the classes and the friendly staff members who help make it a great and safe learning environment. I enjoy being a part of the honors program and taking honors classes which may contain massive amounts of work, but it makes the reward of seeing a good grade more enjoyable. One of my favorite experiences was my linked class consisting of two courses, humanities and english. We read a great deal of books but my favorite was "The Story of Art" by E.H. Gombrich. We studied and looked through nearly every chapter thoroughly. It was a massive amount of work where we actually learned a tremendous amount of material. All of it paid off because at the end of the semester, we went to The Art Institute of Chicago where my classmates, whom are now my buddies because of this experience, and I recieved the pleasure to look over many pieces and styles of the artists we learned about. Also, lunch was provided at an artsy place which topped the wonderful day off. I never knew applying knowledge was so much fun!
