Opportunities to Get Involved Spring 2020


FYS 129: Be Limitless

We all live with some form of an identity crisis, adopting masks that please our parents, our friends, our coworkers, and our society at large. And, for what? To restrict our creativity and more importantly, to impede us from living our true authentic self; and at what cost? Many students/people are struggling to flourish and to live in a neutral flow that promotes positive well-being. This class will teach you how to capture the moment and to live every second limitless rather than the cultivated and domesticated lives that impel us to resistance and to fear. You will walk away inspired and galvanized to live free and to be limitless.

Assistant Professor: James Williams

FYS 129: Community Gardening

Did your family have a food garden? Are you trying to live more sustainably? Gardening is a form of exercise, and is as restful for the mind as meditation. Food gardening saves money, enhances local ecosystems, promotes our local economies, and helps us eat more healthily. Come learn what food gardening is all about by experiencing it first hand with an intensive garden plot in the UT Institute of Agriculture Kitchen Garden. Polish your cooking skills at the UT Culinary Institute as we learn to prepare a delicious meal using fresh vegetables and herbs. Contribute to the local community through service projects at the Beardsley Community Farm and the Pond Gap Community Garden.
