Choosing quirky classes is rewarding

Veronica De La Cruz

With the fall semester flying by, students have to get ready for the exciting yet overwhelming experience of picking classes.

When it comes to general education, I think students should enroll in classes that they don’t necessarily know anything about, but still seem interesting.

One of my favorite semesters was the fall of my first year. Before declaring myself a Journalism major, I had the time to choose electives that sounded just plain fun and interesting to take.

Since I didn’t really know what direction I wanted to go, I took popular classes like Sociology of Sexuality 133, where students explore their own sexuality, and Anthropology 111, where students learn about forensics.

If there’s one thing every college student should do, it’s be open-minded about the variety of courses offered on campus.

Giving a chance to classes one knows nothing about can open up doors to possible career choices that never seemed possible.
