Spring course registration

By Lisa Belgam on November 14, 2011

Hannah Guy and Eli Heller are senior interns in the Office of Admission, and they shared the following post with me:

This week the senior class registered for their final classes as Colgate students. Eli, an English major and political science minor, will be taking courses on Virginia Woolf, Shakespeare, Jewish History and Diaspora, and Rhetoric and Citizenship. He is most excited for the rhetoric course because it discusses the ways that community, state, and national leaders use rhetoric and strategies to pursue their goals and influence constituents. He is also extremely excited to learn about Virginia Woolf, as he hopes to broaden his literary horizons.

As an English and sociology double major, Hannah will be taking Milton, Museum Studies: Native Americans, a Sociology Honors seminar, and the American Musical. In particular, she is looking forward to the American Musical because she has long been a fan and performer and is interested in discussing the topic from a more academic standpoint. Aside from these interesting classes, many of their friends are covering subjects from every corner of the course catalogue. For instance, the History of Coffee and Cigarettes and Hindu Temples: Architecture seem to be popular choices for next semester. While Eli and Hannah are both very sad that this is their last course registration at Colgate, the intriguing and diverse course options will definitely make for a great semester!
