My Great Adventure in FAA 110!

Written by Alyssa Pappas

My transition into my new major of Atmospheric Sciences I knew would not be an easy one. With my schedule being increasingly difficult, I knew that I had wanted to add a class that would have nothing to do with my major and that could act as a breath of fresh air. That is when I discovered FAA 110!  Some of my friends had recommended it to me so I wanted to give it a shot. I could not have been happier with my decision! I got the chance to attend different events, involving the Arts, that I would never have been able to experience outside of taking this class.  Throughout the length of this course I learned so many things and got to see a whole new world away from my science one.  Here are the events that I attended that taught me so much, as well as pictures and links to my blogs to go along with them.

My experience with being in this class is one that can never be duplicated.  With many lessons learned involving: how many different forms of Art there is, how a class doesn’t need to be just lectures and tests, and how important it is to be courageous and attend events I have never been to before.  I plan on keeping up with this experience by continuously putting myself out there and going to events that I wouldn’t typically go to.  That even though my life is heavily based around math and science, I will still make time for myself and not let life pass me by without experiencing as many different performances as possible.
