- "I love the Discovery Courses-this is my 3rd! I feel it contributed greatly to my understanding of the world and to my education."
- "This Discovery Course inspired me to take classes in the future that I had not planned to take."
- "Very enriching--I would not take a course like this if I were only sticking to major requirements."
- "I think this class exemplifies the tremendous opportunities to expand one's academic horizon through some of these breadth courses, that most people would otherwise not have considered taking."
- "This course was my best this semester because it taught me how to simply live in and understand the world. Great!"
- "It allowed me to take a class mostly because I'm interested in it, not because it was for a major or any other reason."
- "As always, Discovery Courses make me think about an entirely different field and issues that I've never been exposed to."
