Most Memorable Moment in Class
I was shocked the first day of class when my professor took off his shoes and sat on the floor. As a freshman I was expecting strict classroom etiquette, this threw me off my feet.
Did CIE help you form personal connections on campus?
Yes! I met some of my now closest friends from CIE class discussions. Because everyone has read the CIE texts, they make for a great conversation starter among people I do not know so well on a regular basis.
How did CIE change or challenge your view on something?
The New Jim Crow by Michelle Alexander really opened my eyes to present day racism that I was previously ignorant about.
What you really need to know about CIE…
I think I’m more perplexed by the CIE questions now that I’m done CIE than before I started to tell the truth.
What CIE will do for you?
CIE gave me a broad base of diverse texts that can be used in academics and life. CIE also exposed me to a lot of different religious and holy texts that I found personally very interesting. The ideas and thoughts of the authors of the CIE texts will carry their weight with me as I live my adult life.
