New Semester Brings New Challenges

First week down, thoughts so far:
Art History- 90% memorization, 10% discussion about the art; disappointed but not surprised.
Italiano- Very interesting and will be helpful if i decide to study Abroad in Italy next summer
Archaeology of Sacred Sites- Very deep and intriguing. Expands on integration of material and spiritual worlds.
Paper as Medium- Unsure of my thoughts thus far
Advanced Wheel Throwing- Challenging. Learning a lot and developing skill, time consuming. Progress is necessary.
