Favorite and/or most impactful course

The first political science course that I took, Power and Politics in America, had a big impact on me. I usually have trouble speaking up in class discussions, but the recitation section I was in for this course changed that. I was in a classroom full of people with different viewpoints, but we still were able to have positive and meaningful discussions without fear of judgement. This class is what made me choose to minor in Political Science. My favorite course so far has been CRIM 101. This class was a 3-hour night class so I initially thought I wouldn't enjoy it, but it turned out to be incredibly interesting. The class was taught by someone who actively worked in the criminal justice field so it was great to learn from first hand knowledge. I also enjoyed the community with my classmates that came from being in a lengthy late night class. 

Why you chose Nebraska

I chose to go to UNL because of all the great advantages that come with being a student here. I was very interested in the education abroad program, as well as the chance to be a part of important research projects and many other opportunities that would set me up for a great future. I also grew up here in Lincoln, so I know a lot of people who went to UNL and loved it.
