Student Reflections 

“I feel like I have gained some valuable knowledge and skills over the past two weeks. I knew it was going to be fun but at the same time a great deal of work. I think that I learned more than I thought I was going to. I didn’t anticipate the course being this amount of work. I enjoyed this class immensely and I will probably talk about it for years to come.”
Rachel Goodman - Summer 2017
