It has been a long road to this final portfolio. As I would assume most freshmen do, I came into this university intimidated but with high expectations for myself and for the curriculum of the school. I knew for sure that I wanted to take a First Year Seminar in my first semester because I had heard so much positive feedback about the program from my “experienced” upperclassman friends. As I was told, taking a seminar would never turn out to be something that I would regret. However, as English has never fully intrigued me, and computers have always mystified my mind, I failed to envision myself taking a seminar entitled English and Computers, much less enjoying it. The first few weeks of the class, however, completely reversed any of my negative preconceived notions of what the class would entail. From the beginning, it became clear that Professor Anderson was the type of instructor that any college student would kill for; not only is he passionate about the subject he teaches, but he actually gives a lick what his students have to say.
