When I first started college a lot of my schedule was made up of general education courses and I wasn’t too happy about that. “Why do I have to take an Intro to Psychology class?” I remember asking myself, “I’m a history major!

I was able to understand the topic so much better in my history class because I figured out what was happening to these people on a psychological level. I felt really smart that day.

Each student offered a dish or material (utensils, table cloth, chairs, etc…) for the evening and time was well-spent enjoying each other’s company prepping and cooking in the basement kitchen of Connelly hall.
