My name is Charles and I will be your instructor for CLA 1001. I am an adviser in the CLA Social Sciences Student Community. I graduated from the U of M with a major in Political Science. (Of note for you commuter students, I also lived at home and commuted to the U when I was a student here). I also attended the University of Florida and earned a MA degree in Latin American Studies. I am a big football fan (Go Gators, go Gophers, Go Vikings) and you can expect to see me posting about that as the football season starts.
You can use this thread to write brief introductions about yourself to share with the other students in order to start getting to know each other before classes start in September.
