Think Before Speaking

Think Before Speaking

Thursday started like any other day here at Summit, I woke up tired and coffee fixed the problem. After breakfast we headed to our second day of class with Dr. Bauman, and that’s when things got interesting. Upon arriving here at Summit, Dr. Bauman had informed us that he would be taking it upon himself to fix our poorly thought through ideas and make sure that we actually know why we believe what we believe. He does this by asking difficult questions and then questioning our answers. Often his intense questioning ends in a student fearfully admitting, “…I don’t know?.

The First Few Days

The First Few Days

They try to make it feel like a normal college. We had an orientation. They put us in dorms. They provide meals. They try really hard - but we know. We know where we are, and if I’m being honest, this experience is substantially more enjoyable than any transition to a university. Waking up every morning to see the sun…
