Farewell to FAA 110 and all the amazing experiences

Jessica Moreno

FAA 110 has been an amazing class. Before I started the class I was very closed to trying new things and I just wanted to stay in my comfort zone, but ever since this class started I realized that I should try new things to see what I like. This has truly been one of my favorite classes, and I really like how the class was set up. I’m not sure what I was expecting when I signed up but it sure wasn’t what I got. My advisor had told me it was just an easy course to get credits, and I had signed up just for that reason but my outcome was amazing from this class. I met new people, I experienced thing that on my own I know I would have never done and I went to places that when I first got here I thought I would go once or twice, but I ended up going 10+. This was an amazing class and I am glad I got to take it and experience what I did.

These are the events I attended:

-Buddy Guy

-Chris Botti

-Jennifer Monson

-Baile Latino

-Homecoming Concert

-Wynton Marsalis

Tiger

-The Nature of Forgetting

Follow the Steps of FAA 110 onto the Tour of Arts

Written by Nicole Miao

FAA 110 is a course about exploring arts and creativity. When I enrolled in this course at first, I was just trying to learn something new about arts and humanities. What I didn’t expect was that FAA 110 far exceeded my expectations. It gave me not only lots of opportunities to enjoy the show for free, but also like-minded friends and a direct channel to art.
