College 211: Reflecting Back

Nexus: Integrate your learning

Reflecting on your experience is a core requirement of Nexus. Students reflect on their experience in the course College 211 “Reflecting Back: Connecting Internship and Research to your Liberal Arts Education” and present at the Learning from Application (LEAP) Symposium in the fall semester after completing summer internships or research experiences. In this course, students learn to speak with confidence and clarity about their summer project and collaborate with others to generate useful knowledge.
