WHAT STUDENTS ARE SAYING ABOUT INQR: 

 INQR 1000 Happiness
 

"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."
