This has been an extremely fun semester and I am so happy I worked my way into this class.
This was my favorite class this year. I enjoyed the conversation we had within this class about the arts and how they connect with our past and our present. However, there are some works that represent our future because it shows where we’ve been, where we’re at, and where we’re going. I was able to see a diverse group of projects for this class and I want to continue to view projects my entire tenure here as a student at UIUC. I really had to fight to get this class into my schedule and just the difficulty of being a freshman and an undeclared freshman at that made it kind of rough. I am happy it worked for my good.
Including taking this class once a week we had to go to events around campus. I had to miss a great portion of the assignments because I am a student worker, so I am always busy. Even though I was often too busy for performances at Krannert I was able to find events to go to and participate in. This semester we went to eight different performances and those will be explored in this article. I did not enjoy all of the performances, however, I was always able to take something away from it which is the purpose of course. Overall, I feel culturally enriched from this class and I enjoyed it most of all.🎉
This is the end of the semester and I just wanted to make sure I thanked Prof. Robinson and Prof. Collins for a fun class.
