I never expected myself to enjoy a political science class as much as I do. To be completely honest, I have learned the most in this class than any other class in college. The professor, Thomas Stewart, was one of the most interesting men, and great teachers I have had in college. He gives the Dos Eques actor a run for his money. He has so much knowledge that he simply brings up off the top of his head that I feel like I know absolutely nothing about politics.
I was never very knowledgeable or cared about politics in high school. Ever since I have been at college my interest has slowly increased. It started with the amount of my friends that talked about politics on a regular basis. Slowly, I started paying more and more attention to what they were saying and what was happening around the world. I now find myself keeping close attention to politics, having an intelligent opinion and ability to keep a conversation on the subject, and showing honest interest. I am very happy with the knowledge I have gained and will continue to learn about the subject.
I am very happy that I was able to take this class. This was an LAS class, but we only ended up with 7 of us in the class. It has been really cool to take this class with a small, close-knit group. We had an assignment where we came up with a plan to reduce the tension between cops and the black community. We ended up competing at an extra credit summit and winning. I have learned so much in this class and will be able to be more knowledgeable in the future when it comes to politics.
