You probably don't know it yet, but you are in a liminal state. In anthropology, a liminal state is when a person is betwixt and between, for example being not really a high school student anymore but not quite a college student. This course focuses on figuring out your liminal state in three ways: 1) exploring the idea of liminality, including the idea that all of college is a liminal space before adulthood, 2) challenging you (literally) to try something new on a regular basis, like three days of Veganism or 24 hours without social media, and 3) exposing you to tools you will need in your adult life, ranging from negotiating politics at dinner parties to exploring career options. If you've read this far and didn't get put off by the scary title or your assumptions about what this course would be, you have what it takes.
