This class was amazingly fun and everybody got really close to each other. We learned a lot while at the same time having a lot of fun (evening studies). Some highlights of the class was the hike to see the goats, animal charades (hahaha)(Never, ever forget the great math debating crocodiles incident), going to Ben and Jerry's, Chase explaining panda cannibalism and mating habits, and Mr. D showing us his wedding evolution of dance video. Break was often spent playing some intense games of ultimate. Overall a great class that everybody had a great time taking.
