The Individual in the Social World
Summer College 2010
Hey guys, I’m James from Short Hills, New Jersey. I just finished up my Junior year at Millburn High School, but I haven’t lived here all my life. I was born in London, England and traveled to many of the European countries before I turned one year old.
This summer at Cornell I will be taking The Individual in the Social World. I chose this course because psychology is one of my passions; I am in my school’s psychology club and attend a meeting every other week. I even have two whole shelves in my room devoted to books about psychology and philosophy. When I’m not studying or doing homework, I’m usually playing soccer or skateboarding. I love to be outside and active, but like everyone else I get tired. When I’m indoors I’m usually reading or writing poetry, which has appeared in my school’s literary magazine as well as in separate private magazines. I’m really looking forward to my summer at Cornell, and I know I’m going to have a great time!
