Before taking this course, I thought of writing as something that had to be formatted as a five paragraph essay in a way that had a strict thesis and not a lot of room to get creative. This course really changed that for me. Ray allowed us to think of writing on our own terms, getting to choose a topic that was personal to our interests allowed us the opportunity to grow as writers. I have learned more in this semester than I have in any other writing class. A lot of the time having looser boundaries makes the assignment a lot harder. I liked how we got to experiment different ways of portraying our message within each of the experiments. I truly believe if I did not have those opportunities, my final project would not look like it does today. Overall, I would highly recommend the writing minor to anyone who is thinking about pursuing it. It has taught me invaluable skills that I will forever be thankful for.
