Get dirty.

Contributed by Jennifer Wofford on 11/30/2010 

This course very well may be one of the highlights of your college career.

We will go outside to learn natural history, local history, & ecology, by learning "primitive" technologies such as starting fires by rubbing sticks together, making natural rope, utilizing edible & medicinal plants, animal tracking and shelter building.

With an emphasis on developing our awareness to be able to perceive subtle changes in the environment, you will learn how to go beyond being a "tourist" even in your own backyard to become "native" to you place. Open to all, no experience required. Just a willingness to learn-by-doing and engage fully in the experience.

Final papers, lab practicals, projects, and studying for finals is enough to make any college student stressed out, but there are ways to help lower stress and finish strong before the winter break. One of the most important measures you can take is to practice good time management skills, including not procrastinating, organizing tasks and commitments, and scheduling study times. Other important habits to remember are to exercise, get adequate sleep, maintain a healthy diet, leave some time in the day to relax, and don't forget to keep a positive attitude.
