    College Sophomore: I've had my fair share of awesome classes, but bad professors, bad classes, but good professors. I think with this type of question, what you put into your education is what you will gain from your education. Here's an example. In the fall 2015 semester I took a Gen-Ed Art class, Art & Society. This was not a hands-on class, it was simply learning about classical artwork from a long time ago. Booooring! I dialed out of the class very fast, because the professor put on many art movies and we read a book on art. He also used a really old projector that had slide inserts, it was a dinosaur! So many artists were drilled into my head for months, artwork that I stared at for months, but once the final came around, I thought I'd never use that information again. But just the other day I visited the Art museum at Princeton University and just as I was leaving, a painting by Monet caught my eye. Monet! I never thought I'd actually see one of his works. I had stared at that artwork for months, and as I kept walking, I saw paintings by Renoir and Cézanne! I knew these famous painters and their stories. It was incredible, seeing these artworks in person. I didn't expect to see any of these art works. How funny, I appreciated the art so much more as I saw it in front of me, each individual brush stroke, the signature in the bottom right-hand corner. So crazy, the real-world connections I made from a Gen-Ed class I didn't even want to take. Not only did the class have an impact on me, but the professor as well.
