We asked our Core Alumni what succinct advice they could offer to new Core students as strategies for success.
Here are some highlights:
For sophomores, Don’t give up, the benefits of Core will continue on and on in all your future classes, regardless of major. You will be so well prepared to draw comparisons and reference other great thinkers! Don’t quit!!
~ Suzyn-Elayne Soler (Core 1998, CAS 2000)
Discuss the texts with fellow Core students, especially Core alums.
~ Matt Moran (Core 2006, CAS 2008)
If you’re returning to Core for a second year, it’s not only for the texts (and the credits). You’re returning because of the faculty. The caliber of teaching and engagement by the Core faculty is unique. There were few classes where I welcomed my mind to be held captive as much as my time in the Core.
