A new building opened up on campus and I have a class in it for the winter semester and I gotta say the building is impressive. It’s spacey and wide. The building is called the E3, it’s called the Student Success and Retention Center.
The desks were nice too, although it is easier to move into groups since the desks/chairs have wheels. I found sitting in the desks to put me off a little due to years having to sit in non-moving desks. The building is 5 stories high and it’ll house all the Language Arts—English, English as a Second Language, Modern Languages (formerly Foreign Languages), and Communication Studies—as well as the Learning Resource Center, Chicana/o Studies, and the Honors Program.
Cannot wait till the next semester and maybe the campus bookstore and cafeteria is open. Oh and my winter class is Children’s Literature.
The books I’m going to read this semester are:
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,
Where the wild things are,
The giving tree,
Where the sidewalk ends,
and The Complete Persepolis.
I will continue to update in a few weeks to tell you what’s going on in the class and if it’s going well.
