Pair up with another student in your HONORS 100 section. Interview one another to find out something you are each interested in or that is important to you. Then investigate an Experiential Learning opportunity in the areas of Research, Service, Leadership, or International Engagement that would be an appropriate and interesting way for your partner to expand their discovery of the topic.
Annotation: This assignment was a bit more challenging, as UW is a vast place and has so many academic nooks and extracurricular crannies that it felt a bit overwhelming at first-- even frustrating at points when something I came across was close to being a perfect fit for Alex, but not quite (like the Native American Law Center, which would be a great resource-- if she were a law student). However, even these near-misses could be real opportunities, and that was important to understand. Even if something doesn't seem to work at first, with a little tweaking, it could be perfect. This assignment also helped me explore the resources available to UW students and aid me when the time comes to research opportunities for myself.
