Grand Canyon Semester: Student Experience
What was the most significant learning experience for you during Grand Canyon Semester?
was the holistic learning style of the whole semester. For once it wasn't about one thing or
another, everything was tied together in one way or another. Being able to view the issues from multiple
angles really helped me feel I
understood the region more than just
through the eyes of the ecologist, anthropologist, or geologist, but instead,
through I received pieces of all of their views.
was the most informative, educational and eye-opening experience for you during
the richness of the region. When I was
younger the Southwest didn't really appeal to me at all. I didn't realize what I was missing out on. Seeing all of the gorgeous sights and then
learning the significance of them through all of our courses deeply rooted me
in the places and issues we learned of and visited. Again, this ties together with what I wrote
in the previous section about the holistic learning experience.
