For this weeks classmate conversation I was able to talk to not only one, but two classmates. Their names are Tina Tran and Amanda Martinez and they are both pretty awesome. Tina is a fifth year biochemistry major and Amanda is a fifth year environmental science and policy major. While discussing this weeks, question of the week, we found out that we all share pretty similar views toward the future. Speaking of the question of the week, it was: Describe what the college experience will be like for a student in 2036. In response to this, we all thought that is would be very integrated with technology in order to not only connect with others more but to also use technologies awesome power. Us all being science majors really helped too because technology can cause us to lose everyday interactions over time but it also allows us to discover, collaborate, and share in ways that were unimaginable not that long ago. With the ability to code computer programs and sequence DNA we will soon be integrate these technologies to cure human disease in a similar way as getting rid of a computer virus.
This immense potential has us all excited for what the future holds, and since colleges usually at the forefront of technology and research we see this as being a big change to the college experience of tomorrow. To learn more about Tina or Amanda you can visit their websites for more information.
