Tunnel of Oppression

20 points extra credit

Attend the Tunnel of Oppression and submit a reflection.  The event takes place on Wednesday and Thursday, November 19 and 20 from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. (with a one hour break from 12 p.m. – 1 p.m.) in the Grand Salon.

Sign up to attend the Tunnel of Oppression . You do not have to sign up in advance but if you don’t, there are no guarantees you will get to go through the Tunnel and it will take much longer.

After attending the event, write a 2-3 page reflection. The reflection should include what you learned through the experience and how it relates to our course content. Be sure to tie in course concepts including at least two citations. Submit your reflection email by November 24.  No late reflections will be accepted.
