Daeton Reflects on his semester

What I have learned in my class: Art of The essay is how to formulate words and how to create creative essays which involve a topic of eco writing. Aside from this amazing class I have really gotten to enjoy getting out of my own comfort zone so I’m able to meet up with new people and get to try new opportunities which in the previous year I had not undertaken. I really enjoyed how positive I was and how I was able to use it to encourage the others of Think College students and mentors alike to help them succeed in their work and time on the campus. The other things I have vastly enjoyed is getting to do several games with the students in the fishbowl while also having a good daily dose of Feel Good which only helped to further brighten my day.

I feel that also I’ve changed more since the previous year. Like last year I had a good time but I feel like I really allowed myself to channel more positivity into this year and enjoying the new opportunities the campus had given me. Not to mention new friends too.

Sara reflects on her semester

My semester is going great! I am taking The Art of the Essay and so far I am maintaining an A in the class! This feels really good to me. I’m also really enjoying mentor time and the events that go on in the Davis Center. I’ve won lots of prizes at the Davis Center giveaways, which I share with other Think college mentors and students. My biggest accomplishment this semester so far has been completing my lyric essay. I wrote on a topic I feel passionate about, being pro-choice on abortion.

Sophia Reflects

My name is Sophia Robins. I am a Senior in the think college. I am doing an internship at many places for example. On Tuesday I am going downtown to my Fetch the Leash! Dog Behavior & Training. Last year I learned how to look at the bus schedule. I know how to use it and it is a good skill to have when you live on campus. On Monday and Wednesday, I will be going to walk dogs at the humane society. And I am doing a workout class.

Daeton Reflects on his time at Think College Vermont

To be back at Think College was as exciting as to be starting it! Not only did I get to see old friends, but I made some new friends too! I’m very thankful for meeting people apart of Think College, not just in improving my year in this program, but also to widen my circle of friends. My class, written expression, couldn’t be more perfect either! If anyone is interested in the pursuit of writing, I would highly recommend it to others. The class has given me lots of opportunities to improve my own ability of writing and new ways I can incorporate into my daily life!
