What is the best class that you’ve taken so far and why?

The best class I have taken was Understanding Disability taught by Joanie Groome, who is an amazing professor and person. The class allowed me to swim with children with disabilities once a week at the Athletics and Events Center. The class talked about disability rights and what it means to have a disability in today’s society. It was a very eye-opening class and the highlight of my semester.
