Professor Best encouraged us to go to a lecture on Social Science, saying it’ll definitely be intriguing for those “STS” (Science Technology in Society) types. As a program and a set of students, we represent something on campus by being in IDEAS. We have interests that go beyond just the College of Arts and Sciences or Engineering, and instead fuse both of them together, which some lectures around campus already do.
The College of Arts and Sciences is so broad and diverse, its hard to choose what to do! As registration for the next fall quickly approaches, figuring out the avenue you want to take is important. That is why talks and lectures like that help, because they give insight into different areas other people are exploring and that you might want to as well.
It’d be great if more students got involved and sought out all that Lehigh has to offer. There are so many opportunities, and really where most of my blogging inspiration comes from. You’re not just at college to go to class and get good grades and hang out with friends. So much learning and opportunity exists outside of the classroom if you know where to look for it.
