Bennett College for Women Reviews
As an Education major during the Fall of 2018, Bennett College's Department of Education allowed me to work with kids in a classroom during a practicum process. I did mine with third graders at Washington Montessori Elementary School in Greensboro, NC. In the spring of 2018, I switched majors to Interdisciplinary Studies with a concentration in History. Thus far, the area of study has helped me think critically and develop lesson plans and activities for my future students in the classroom environment and overcome my fear of public speaking. However, it is still a working progress. With the practice in the past from being an Education major and my internship as an Interdisciplinary Studies Major, it has given me the chance to work with different age groups of children. Therefore, my degree, Interdisciplinary Studies that I received during my undergraduate years has prepared me for the leadership of becoming a teacher.
Due to the Corona virus pandemic, my senior year was completed at home. It was sad to say goodbye to all of my belle sisters, and the staff also professors that I built a close relationship with. Still, it was for our safety. Honestly, I was not too fond of zoom way before the pandemic, but then I grasped the hang of using it like a pro who had used it for years. We would meet according to our schedules, sometimes the full-time length or other times shorter. Graduation was held virtually, and all of us within the Class of 2020 wondered how this would be possible, but Bennett gave us a memorable virtual ceremony.
I love my school! Sisterhood 4 Life! Bennett is a really good college, at first I wasn't sure if I was going to like it. But overtime I grew to love it. Bennett has some room for improvement in some areas and needs to work some problems out. Overall, I think Bennett is great and every women should experience the Sisterhood of Bennett College.
