Feedback from students
Good afternoon Mr. Toupadakis!
I just wanted to reply to your e-mail that you sent a couple of
days ago. I really enjoyed your class because you allowed us to
interact with others.
Hearing other people my age talk about what they go through, what
strategies they use to effectively study and get good grades, and
advice they may have to give helped me this quarter. In fact, I
had the highest GPA this quarter for the entire year! I would like
to believe that the book “On Course” and this freshman
seminar helped me achieve that! I was simply ecstatic that my grades
are improving. In fact, I plan to read On Course all over again
before my second year of college.
This also gives me this suggestion: You should teach this freshman
seminar course every fall quarter! If I took this course at the
beginning of my freshman year, I definitely would have been better
off and more knowledgeable.
Other than that, you did great! Hope to keep in touch with you.
And it is okay for you to put my name under my essay.
Have a great summer,
Hi Mr. Toupadakis,
Sorry for the late reply. I don't check my email anymore because
school is out. XD
I liked how we get to connect with other students in small groups
and listen to their responses on the topic. I got feedbacks and
different point of views, which is a big eye opener.
By following the book, I changed my temper and also my outcomes
in difficult situations. I became a "creator" instead
of a "victim". Also, by doing those journals, I became
more aware of myself since it's in ink.
My advice to the new students is that you have to be ready mentally
to change and be open to really have an effect on you. If you take
it lightly to just get a grade, you are just waste your time. Don't
overestimate this class.
I hope that was good enough. :)
