My favorite class that I have taken was my Freshman Seminar abroad. While in Minneapolis, we studied impressionism and practiced our drawing and painting skills. I study Art History, but I am no artist so I loved the balance of material that I was comfortable with, and aspects that were extremely challenging for me. Of course, it did not hurt that we spent a week in Paris and Southern France.
To me, sustainability means accepting the connection that you have to the world around you. Once that is realized, it is important to make a conscious effort to making your environments better. When the Earth thrives, you thrive.
Caitlyn Carr is a senior at the University of Minnesota majoring in Art History with a minor in CSCL. Originally from Chicago, she is loving her time in the Twin-Cities (though she misses her beloved Cubbies). Her passions include traveling, dancing, communicating only through emojis, and of course, telling anyone who will listen how amazing WAM is. Just back from a semester in Italy, she is thrilled to be more involved with the Collective for the upcoming year!
