I have a great conversation about the hit TV show This Is Us and the great outdoors with Brian Heger, Renee Schuster, and Alicia Wojciuch as they discuss their USEM: "Braving the Wilderness" to find "This Is Us".
Have you ever wondered why you are the way you are? This course will explore self-identity and the factors that influenced your development – making you who are you today. Where did you come from, where are you going, and with whose help? You will learn how to leverage your personal strengths for personal and academic success in college and beyond, how to incorporate reflection into your weekly activities, how to understand the diverse perspectives of others in our community, and how to learn from, and in, the world around us. We will do this while spending time indoors, outdoors, alone, and together, all with the help of lessons from the popular show “This is Us” and the book “Braving the Wilderness.”
