"The thing I appreciated the most about my INQR class, was the discussions my professors led. It helped me think deeper about the topics we were learning and helped me understand the movies we watched more. I also enjoyed the EXPO because it allowed me to explore the other classes and different topics in a brief period of time."
"The inquiry is a great way for students to do research and have questions answered on a certain topic. I believe this course will help guide us as students to help solve problems and it is great way to inspire students on what they want to do in the future."
