In his First Year Seminar section this fall, Professor Paul Lauritzen assigned a paper modeled on the "This I Believe" series made popular by National Public Radio.  The idea behind the series is to get ordinary citizens "writing, sharing, and discussing the core values and beliefs that guide their daily lives."  Lauritzen asked his students to write 350-500 word essays on what they believe.  He liked the essays so much that he recorded the students reading their essays.  You can read and listen to some of the essays by clicking on the links to the right.
