Students in Professor Caroline Hunt’s English 110 course, part of the learning community Critical Thinking: Catalyst for Success collected and delivered bottle caps and lids for the Bryant Holsenbeck installation, researched both the history of mandalas and the work of the artist and volunteered to assist with the mandala construction.
The learning community enables incoming freshman considering majors in biological sciences and mathematics to engage in classes offering peer facilitation, supplemental instruction, active learning, problem-solving and social activities.
