I’m very excited to start a new semester this year, and I plan on leaving the class with information that I didn’t know about before. My goal in this class is to improve on my reading and writing skills. Also more importantly, improve my researching skills. Research is a vital tool that I will have to use for the rest of my life. My strengths as a student are paying attention and giving insight when needed. What I want to improve on as a student is getting my work done in a timely manner so I’m not stressed out. I can be an engaging member of the seminar classroom by asking questions and giving answers to questions one of my peers might have. The main focus of Integrative Seminar 2 is research. In the future I want to become a fashion designer. Fashion designers use research constantly in their work to find current trends, demographics, and more. Integrative Seminar 2 will help me improve on my research and it will apply to what I want to do in the future.
