What has been your favorite class at COA? Why?
I really loved India, Afghanistan, and Pakistan; Crossroads of Conflict taught by Lucy Creevey. In this class, I read so many wonderful books about the rich history of that part of the world. The class then went to a conference and discussed the current political situations between these countries. It was a very intellectually stimulating class, so prevalent to the politics of the world today, and also a lot of fun.
