What University Seminar Students are Saying
USEM introduced me to ideas I was never exposed to growing up. My view on life opened up and changed. I learned to create an optimistic lens and not to dwell too much on the hard stuff. Lastly, I really found and accepted myself, and I found acceptance from others. I lost fears and gained the confidence to trust in who I am.
I walked into USEM thinking it was going to be some non-important busywork GEN ED class. I quickly found with every assignment a deeper meaning that helped improve both my critical thinking and my social skills. My classmates became a family that supported each other throughout the entire course.
USEM was the perfect course to prepare me for my academic journey here at SOU. Writing research papers doesn’t scare me anymore thanks to the useful tips and information presented in my USEM course. USEM not only helped me academically, the course also helped me to feel better integrated into college life.
