While it can be difficult to know what to study in college, sources say one student has found their passion this week: University Studies. Aaron Taylor, a first year student, attributes his newfound interest in the University of South Carolina to his University 101 course.
“If you’d asked me like a week ago, I’d probably have told you I didn’t know much at all about USC,” Taylor said. “But now I think I can make a career out of it.”
Taylor’s advisor, who also teaches his section of U101, is pleased with his progress. “We don’t normally see this level of indoctrination until U301, but Taylor is absolutely ahead of the curve. He’s developed what some might call a troubling level of dedication to this University,” she said with a smile. “That’s what sets true University-ists apart.”
The University Studies program focuses on giving students a narrowly-focused curriculum on topics such as University history, Student Government political science, and even teaching future U101 sections. At press time, Taylor announced that he would be seeking an internship in Patricia Moore-Pastides’ kitchen.
