My name is Elizabeth Holcombe. I am currently a sophomore at Clemson University studying to get my B.S. in Psychology with a minor in Biological Sciences. After not having the best fall semester I enrolled in CU1010. This class has gone beyond my expectations of what I thought I would get out of it. During the process of creating my portfolio I have learned so many skills I can apply in school and out of school in everyday life. Although this project was not very difficult, it did require a lot of time and thinking. Starting with the first learning objective, the most important thing I learned from it was to always listen to my inner guide. With this I learned to never let my inner critic be to in control. The second learning outcome, my favorite, was on time-management. This was very important in terms of this project. I lacked time-management skills and this class has definably helped me improve. I have seen myself more on time and well prepared than ever this semester. The third learning out come was self-retrieval practice. I found this to be very helpful because I found my favorite way to study as well as my best. I also found different study methods work best for me depending on the class. The fourth learning outcome was the post-test analysis. Here I was able to see my mistakes and talk with the professor about how I could improve. I was able to learn insightful information that will defiantly help me out for the next exam and finals coming up. Learning out come number five is the professor interview. I loved this part! I was able to talk to one of my favorite teachers, and learn more about him. He told me some of his favorite things to do (outside of school) and how he ended up where he is today. I also was able to hear more about his research and why he was doing it. The sixth learning outcome was about values and goals. This was interesting to say the least. Although it was difficult I enjoyed playing the values game and would encourage everyone try it. My first self-design exhibit was about the learning curve. I chose this because I thought it was interesting and would be very useful. This turned out to be true. My second self-design exhibit was about sleep. I have never been the one to get the full eight ours, so I thought it would be interesting to see how it went. I sure am glad I chose this. I not sleep eight hours a night regularly because of how great I feel the next day. Without this project I would of never tried this out and still be lacking on my sleep. This portfolio is a great reflection of CU1010. Reflecting on the semester, I would not have improved as much as I did without this class. I am forever grateful I took it. I have seen myself grow so much over these past months and defiantly acquired some of the skill through out this class.
